Students have the right, by law, to keep all information in their files confidential. However, the College has established a category known as Directory Information. Directory Information may include: student name, address, phone number, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in activities and sports, dates of attendance, and degrees and awards received. Directory Information is normally released without a signed consent by the student. Since Directory Information does not include grades, financial data, or any other strictly personal data, the College expects very few students will wish this information withheld. If, however, a student does not wish Directory Information released without a signed consent, a Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information must be submitted to the Registrar's Office immediately upon enrollment. This written notice to keep Directory Information confidential will be placed in the student's file and no information will be released unless a signed release form is received. Any further questions should be directed to the Registrar's Office.
