Directory Information Policy

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 provides St. Mary’s with the right to make public at the University’s discretion, without prior authorization from the individual student, any of the following: Name of Student; Class Term/Year; Local and Permanent addresses and telephone numbers; Email addresses; Enrollment status; Date and place of birth; Dates of attendance at St. Mary’s; Dates of degrees, honors and awards received. St. Mary’s does not intend to give out this information to third party vendors, solicitors, or individuals unrelated to the school. In general, this information is shared only within the learning community of St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute. A student may prevent the release of the above information by checking “NO” in the appropriate box of the Registration Form, which would mean that external requests for information pertaining to my attendance at St. Mary’s will be withheld until written notification is given by student. To avoid that circumstance, check “YES” on the Registration Form.
