FERPA/Student Privacy Rights

Under the regulations defined by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act(FERPA) and San Jose State University, you have the choice to restrict directory information from being released without your consent. SJSU has defined enrollment and degree verification information as the only directory information available.  All other information is already protected and will not be provided without your written consent.

To edit your FERPA/Directory restrictions:

Log into your MySJSU, under the “Personal Information” banner, click on the link titled “User Preferences”, click on the “Security” tab, and then click on the green “Edit FERPA/Directory” button.
