FERPA

Directory Information

FERPA allows for the university to define some basic information which may be released without a student prior consent. This is referred to as “Directory Information”. The university has defined the following as student directory information for UW-Green Bay:

  • Student name
  • Home Address
  • Home Telephone
  • Campus Email address
  • Class level
  • Dates of attendance
  • Major field of study
  • Degrees
  • Honors and awards received
  • Participation in officially recognized activities and sports
  • Height of members of athletic teams
  • The most recent educational agency or institution attended

This information comes primarily from each student’s SIS account. Students are encouraged to review and update their contact information on a regular basis by logging into SIS and using the self-service function to make changes to their directory information. A student can submit a Restriction Request to prevent their personal information from being released publicly.

  • Student ID numbers
  • Any portion of a Social Security number
  • Marital status
  • Any previous name
  • Parent’s name and address
