FERPA Tutorial 5

Suppressed Directory Information

A student has the right to require that directory information about him/her not be disclosed. The student must request the hold through the Registrar’s office. A FERPA hold will be placed on the student’s record.

To find out if a student has a FERPA hold, contact the Welcome Center at (608) 785-9200 before disclosing any information to another party.

If a student has a FERPA Hold, the response to any inquiry should be, 
“There is no information available for any student by that name.”
