Directory Information

FERPA allows colleges to identify part of the educational record as “directory information.”

In most instances, directory information can be released without prior student consent.

At Western, directory information includes:

  • Name
  • City
  • State
  • Dates of attendance
  • Credit load
  • Previous colleges and schools attended
  • Program of study
  • Awards, honors and degrees conferred, including dates
  • Past and present participation in officially recognized sports and activities
