With a Privacy Hold, no directory information is given out on that individual. Nothing will be printed in the Joker, Yearbook or Numerique as long as the student makes a request to the Records and Advisement Office within the second week of the fall semester.
A Privacy Hold means that the student’s entire education record is considered non-directory information. When a student calls the University or a person calls on the student’s behalf, the university cannot even acknowledge that the individual is a student at the university. This makes communication between the university and the student very difficult. Therefore, we recommend that students do not request a privacy Hold unless it is absolutely necessary.
The university computer system will show if a student has a Privacy Hold.
