NON DISCLOSURE OF DIRECTORY INFORMATION: FERPA affords the right to students to request non-disclosure of “directory information” to third parties. To prevent AUM from disclosing any “directory information” to third parties, students must complete the “Request to Opt Out of Directory Information” form available from the Registrar’s Office, Suite 114, Taylor Center. Such requests may be filed at any time. The request to prevent disclosure of “directory information” will remain in effect permanently, including after departure from AUM, unless subsequently changed by the student. At the time of graduation, students will be given an opportunity to release such information hold. Any student considering total confidentiality should be aware that this will have significant consequences such as preventing acknowledgment of his or her enrollment and the release of any and all “directory information” by AUM to potentially interested third parties such as parents, spouses, children, other family members, insurance companies, and potential employers. Students should carefully consider the consequences before submitting the form.
For more detailed information, please see FERPA FAQs on the AUM website or contact the Registrar’s Office by calling 334-244-3125 or by emailing [email protected].
