FERPA Tutorial Directory Information

FERPA allows colleges and universities to classify part of the educational
record as “directory” information.

Normally, schools may disclose directory information without the written consent of the student. This includes information such as:

  • Name
  • Addresses (including e-mail)
  • Telephone numbers

At UIS, directory information for current students also includes:

  • Name, date and place of birth, and hometown
  • University Identification Number (UIN)
  • Address(es), electronic address (e-mail), and telephone number(s)
  • Classification (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, graduate level, non-degree, etc.)
  • Campus attendance site
  • College and fields of study: major(s), minor(s), concentration(s), certificate(s)
  • Participation in recognized university activities and sports, including height, weight, and position of athletic team members
  • Dates of attendance (including full or part-time status) and date of admission
  • Degrees, honors, awards, certificates anticipated or received
  • Previous educational institution(s) attended
  • Picture

Caution: Although FERPA allows for release of directory information, University policy prohibits the release of lists of information, including directory information, except for a “legitimate educational purpose.” See the UIS Student Record Policy for more details.
