What is Directory or Public Information?

" . . . information contained in an education record of a student which would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed."

Directory Information can NEVER include:

  • Social security number

Can directory information be released to anyone who requests it?

NO - If the student has requested that directory information be withheld, no information can be released outside of UNT except as provided by law. Or, to anyone within UNT who does NOT have a legitimate educational interest.

YES - If the student has NOT requested that directory information be withheld.
