University of Arkansas at Little Rock
Policy Name: Directory or Public Information Release
Policy Number: 514.4
Effective Date: April 1, 2010 (review date)

Policy:

The items below are designated “Directory or Public Information” by UALR and may be released for any purpose at the discretion of the University.

Under the provisions of FERPA, a student has the right to withhold the disclosure of “Directory or Public Information” listed below.

This includes the student’s name, address, telephone number, date of birth, major field of study, enrollment status, grade level, dates of attendance, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height (for members of athletic teams only), honors, degrees and awards received, photograph, most recent educational agency or institution attended, and e-mail addresses.

All students must make the request to withhold directory or published information in writing to the Office of Records and Registration by the 11th day of class. This request will remain in effect until removed by the student in writing. In the event of such a request, this request will be treated as student records information. Please consider very carefully the consequence of any decision by you to withhold “Directory or Public Information.” Should you decide to request the University not to release “Directory or Public Information,” any future requests for such information from non-institutional persons or organizations will be refused. The University will honor your request to withhold directory information but cannot assume responsibility to contact you for subsequent permission to release the hold.

Regardless of the effect upon you, the institution assumes no liability for honoring your instructions that such information be withheld. For additional information on details of FERPA, please see the Office of the Dean of Students or the Office of Records and Registration.
