What Is Directory Information?

Directory information is information that can be released to any third party without the student's written consent. There are a couple of exceptions to this guideline, which we will discuss further in Section 3.

Each higher education institution is allowed to define what is considered to be directory information.

Key Points:

Records that typically contain personally identifiable information:

  • Directory Information may be released without the student's written consent.
  • Individual institutions determine what information is classified as directory information.
