Directory information is information which would not generally be considered harmful if disclosed. It includes the following: name; home and college addresses; telephone listing; mail address; date of birth; major; enrollment status (full-time or part-time); dates of attendance; awards received; weight and height of athletic team members; photographs; most recent and previous educational institutions attended; and participation in officially recognized activities and sports.
Currently enrolled students may withhold disclosure of personally identifiable, directory-type information under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). To withhold disclosure, written notification must be received in the Office of the Registrar. Forms requesting the withholding of directory information are available. Vermont Tech assumes that failure on the part of any student to specifically request the withholding of directory information indicates individual approval for disclosure.
