LMU designates the following information contained in students’ education records as "directory information." Directory information may be disclosed by the University without the student’s prior consent pursuant to the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). However, the University is not required to disclose directory information and therefore, carefully evaluates requests for information. At LMU, directory information includes the student’s name, address,telephone number, email address, date and place of birth, photographs, major and minor field(s) of study, dates of attendance, class (freshman, sophomore, etc.), enrollment status (undergraduate or graduate; full or part-time), participation in officially recognized activities or sports, height and weight of student-athletes, degrees, honors (including Dean’s List) and awards received, and the most recent educational agency or institution attended.
Currently enrolled students may withhold disclosure of directory information under FERPA. To withhold disclosure, students must submit a Request to Restrict Release of Directory Information to the Registrar. Former students may not submit a request to restrict disclosure of directory information on their education records, but they may request removal of a previous request for nondisclosure.
For more information regarding the University’s FERPA policy, please contact the Registrar.
