What is directory information?
Directory information refers to information such as name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student. This information is releasable under the Federal legislation. However, please note that the University policy S66-20 is more restrictive than Federal Law. SJSU policy guidelines indicate that the only directory information routinely released to outside parties without student consent is enrollment status and degree completion (if applicable). Requests for addresses and telephone numbers are not honored, especially if for commercial purposes.
