How Do I Restrict My Address, E-Mail Address or Telephone Number from Release?

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), you have the right to restrict the release of certain categories of information by the university. You may restrict the release of your addresses and/or telephone numbers from publication by following the steps below. Students may restrict online directory information at any time; however, students who wish to restrict printed directory information must do so prior to the end of registration each Fall term.
