FERPA

A student's updated name of record will be disclosed as "directory information" unless the student refuses to permit such disclosure. For further information on disclosure of directory information, please refer to UWSP Guidelines for Compliance with the Family Educational rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).  Printed directories for currently enrolled students are produced in mid-September.  Name changes that are processed after this date will be reflected in online directories only.
