3. Directory Information

FERPA allows colleges and universities to classify part of the education record as "directory" information.

Normally, schools may disclose directory information without the written consent of the student. WIU has defined the following as directory information for our university:

  • Student's name
  • School and home addresses
  • WIU email address
  • Telephone numbers
  • Major field of study
  • Dates of attendance
  • Full- or part-time status
  • Degrees, honors and awards received (including Dean's List) and date granted
  • Anticipated graduation date
  • Most recent previous educational agency or institution attended
  • Participation in recognized university activities and sports
  • For members of athletic teams, weight and height
