Under FERPA, sections of a student’s educational record are defined as Directory Information and is considered public information; it may be shared without a student’s consent unless a student has blocked disclosure of their directory information.
Directory Information at UoPeople includes a student’s name, address (local, permanent or email), telephone number, date and place of birth, major field of study, enrollment status (undergraduate or graduate, full or part-time) and dates of attendance at UoPeople, degrees and honors received, expected graduation date, previous educational institutions attended, and photographs.
Currently enrolled students may block disclosure of their Directory Information by completing this form. This request is permanent until a request is otherwise submitted in the Student Portal to unblock the disclosure of Directory Information.
Note that students who are no longer studying at UoPeople, and whose Directory Information was not restricted during their last term of study, cannot restrict the release of the Directory Information until re-enrolled at UoPeople.
Questions should be directed to the Office of Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
