Personal Information

What is a Directory Information (D.I.) hold, and what restrictions does it apply to the use of my account?

No personally-identifiable information (except Directory Information) from a student's education records shall be disclosed without the prior written consent of the student except as otherwise provided by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, as amended, and Chapter 22 of the Code of Iowa.  Such written consent must be signed and dated, must specify the record of information to be released, and the reason for requesting the release.  Personally-identifiable information may be disclosed to other school officials who have been determined to have a legitimate

Can I have my directory information holds removed by calling the Registrar's Office?

A signed release is required to remove directory information holds; therefore, we are unable to lift the holds by phone. You may come to our office in person to have the holds removed, or you may do so electronically through your MyUNIverse account.

I don't remember my student I.D. number. Can this number be given to me over the phone?

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prohibits a school from disclosing personally identifiable information from students' education records without the consent of an eligible student.  Due to this, a student number may not be given over the phone to protect the privacy of the student.  If filling out a form that requires this number, please substitute your social security number or visit the office with photo identification to obtain the number. 

How do I request that certain directory information not be released without my written authorization?

Directory information may be suppressed under the privacy tab in MyUNIverse or by submitting a signed release to the Office of the Registrar to release/suppress your information. Please note that suppression of any item of directory information will prevent publication of your name for Dean's List, and may prevent you from receiving information from academic departments, honoraries, service organizations and so forth.
