Confidentiality and Privacy of Student Records

 Edinboro University policy is in compliance with the Pennsylvania “Right To Know Law of 1957” and the federal “Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974”, as amended, concerning the rights of students to confidentiality and privacy of their records.

 The release of the following “directory information” is permitted under the law, and it may be released to third persons at the discretion of the Registrar without the prior permission of the student:

1. Student’s name

2. Campus, local or home address, e-mail address, and telephone number

3. Student Photograph

4. Date, place of birth, weight/height (for members of athletic teams)

5. Dates of attendance, most recent or previous educational institution attended, academic major,     part-time/full-time status.

6. Date of graduation and degree/awards received

7. Student activity participation (including athletics)

8. Information concerning alumni accomplishments

Each student has the right to prevent the release of directory information indicated above by notifying the Office of Records and Registration in writing. Such notification must be submitted to the Office of Records and Registration no later than the end of the “Add Period” established by the University for each academic semester or session. Once a written request to withhold information has been received, it will remain in effect until the student rescinds the request, in writing, to the Office of Records and Registration.
