Unless otherwise notified in writing, the university may release the following directory information upon request: student’s name, current address, telephone number, email address, major field of study, dates of attendance, and degrees and awards received. The university will also publish the student’s name, major field of study, and email address on its Internet-accessible directory.
Students who wish to block the release of directory information must notify the Office of the Registrar in person or in writing and complete the appropriate form. Students should consider the consequences of blocking the release of directory information very carefully since, once blocked, all future requests for contact information from UB persons (on nonessential matters) and from non-institutional persons and organizations (such as scholarship organizations or prospective employers) will be denied. Students who have blocked the release of directory information will not be included in university publications, including the commencement brochure.
Students should be aware that even if they decide to prevent release of their directory information, information will still be shared within the university for educational and administrative purposes.
