Right to Withhold Disclosure

Under the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, currently enrolled students may withhold disclosure of directory information. To prevent disclosure, the Office of the Registrar must receive written notification from a student indicating the information to be withheld. Should a student decide to inform the institution not to release certain information, any future requests for such information from non-institutional persons or organizations will be refused. Decisions about withholding any information should be made very carefully.

PCOM will honor each request to withhold any of the categories of information indicated by a student. However, we cannot assume responsibility to contact a student for subsequent permission to release them should requests be received. PCOM assumes that failure to request the withholding of directory information indicates approval for disclosure.
