Academic Information

    • members of the faculty;

    • members of the professional, executive, and administra- tive staff, excluding any member of the Central Michigan University Police Department;

    • students, when properly appointed as members of a hear- ing panel or screening committee;

    • representatives of the State Auditor General when perform- ing their legal function;

    • a person or company with whom the university has con- tracted (e.g. attorney, auditor, or collection agent) but limited to only the specific student information needed to fulfill their contract;

    Upon request, the university discloses educational records without a student’s consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks to enroll. Another exception which permits disclosure without consent is when the information consists solely of “Directory Information.” Directory information may be published or released by university faculty and staff at their discretion. Unless a student specifically directs otherwise, as explained more fully in paragraph (4) below, Central Michigan University designates all of the following categories of information about its students as directory information:

    • name, campus address, home address, telephone listing, and campus e-mail;

    • state of residence;

    • age, date, and place of birth;

    • major field of study, including the college, department, or program in which the student is enrolled;

    • classification as a freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate student;

    • enrollment status (full-time, half-time, less than half- time);

    • participation in officially recognized activities and sports;

    • weight and height of members of athletic teams;

    • dates of attendance and graduation, and degrees re- ceived;

    • the most recent educational institution attended;

    • honors and awards received, including selection to the dean’s or president’s list, honorary organization, or the GPA range for the selection.

  • 5.

    A student has the right to refuse the designation of all cat- egories of personally identifiable information listed above (a. through k.) as directory information. If a student exercises this right, it will mean that no directory information pertain- ing to the student will be published or otherwise released to third parties without consent, a court order, or a subpoena. Any student wishing to exercise this right must inform the Registrar’s Office in writing by September 1st regarding the withholding of all categories of personally identifiable infor- mation with respect to that student. This will ensure that their name will not appear in the printed Central Michigan Univer- sity Directory. Requests after this date will be processed and although it will not impact the printed directory it will remove the student’s information from the on-line directory. Once a student has requested the withholding of information, “Direc- tory Information” will be withheld until they submit another request in writing to remove it.

  • 6.

    The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Educa- tion concerning alleged failures by Central Michigan University to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is: Family Policy Compliance Office
