By completing the “Nondisclosure of Information” form, you may request that any or all of this directory information not be released without prior written consent. Students may also request that we release certain information to a designated person and thus can complete the “FERPA Release” form.

These forms are also available in the Registrar's Office webpage under Forms and may be filed, withdrawn, or modified at any time.

If you do not want your information disclosed, complete the Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information form and return it to the Registrar's Office in Room S-315.
