Confidentiality of Student Records - FERPA Privacy Information


The UF Directory is the sole source of contact information for students, faculty, staff and affiliates.The information stored in the directory feeds directly into myUFL, the online phonebook and other campuswide systems. Directory information refers to information contained in a student's educational record that can be disclosed publicly.

Directory information is not treated as confidential and may be disclosed by the university without student consent unless the student requests nondisclosure. Students may place a privacy hold on their educational record to prevent the release of directory information to third parties, but only while they are enrolled at the university. A privacy hold expires only when the student requests its removal in writing. Students can place a privacy hold on their student record by completing the Restriction of Directory Information form at the Office of the University Registrar. Once a student has placed a privacy hold, a student's directory information will not be released to third parties or to the student over the telephone.
