Public Information and Request for Nonrelease

University policy, consistent with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 as amended, permits disclosure of certain categories of public information. At UCSC the following information is considered to be a matter of public information and will be disclosed unless the student has requested that it be withheld:

  • student’s name
  • mailing address
  • campus e-mail address
  • local telephone number  
  • division
  • department
  • college, major and minor fields of study
  • dates of attendance
  • class level
  • degrees and honors received
  • number of credits currently enrolled
  • name, weight, and height of participants on intercollegiate athletic teams

To have this information withheld from release, go to the Student Center on MyUCSC and select Privacy Settings from the drop down list in the Personal Information section. Be sure that you understand the implications of requesting a Nonrelease of Information. Every single item listed above will be withheld from public release. Once a Request for Nonrelease of Public Information is filed, it remains in effect until you rescind it via MyUCSC. Students who have requested a Nonrelease of Information have the option to release their information to be printed on commencement programs and honors lists. This release can be authorized on MyUCSC in the Privacy Settings section referred to above.

Students who do not wish to file a Request for Nonrelease of Public Information may request that their information not be published in the campus directory. This can be done on MyUCSC in the Privacy Settings section referred to above.

If you have any questions about the implications of the Nonrelease of Public Information, contact the Office of the Registrar, 190 Hahn Student Services, 459-4412.
