Your Rights & Privacy

Your right to privacy

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects the privacy of your education records. These records are considered confidential and cannot be released to third parties (including your parents) without your written consent.

Public vs. Private information

Certain information about you, called student directory or public information, can be released unless you’ve filed a request for nondisclosure. Other information, called protected information, cannot be released without your consent. Learn more below about each type of information and how to manage its privacy.

Ethnic information

We gather ethnic information in compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The U.S. Department of Education requests this information from us. Contact the registrar services team to refuse disclosure of this information or request its removal from your records without penalty.
