3.13 Information that is of a Directory Nature

Alexandria Technical and Community College has designated the following information as directory information: student's name, home town, program/major, StarID, pictures, enrollment/withdrawal dates, graduation status (type of degree/diploma and date of graduation), and honors/awards. This information may be released to the public without prior consent unless the student notifies the college in writing of his/her objection to the release of information in one or more of these categories. Forms to request the withholding of directory information are available in the Registrar's Office. If a student requests to have all or a portion of their directory information withheld, the request will remain in effect until the student rescinds it in writing. If a student does not specifically request the withholding of directory information within the first 15 days of enrollment, it will indicate student approval for disclosure.

Minnesota Statutes §135A.145 prohibits colleges and universities and any affiliated organizations from providing a credit "card issuer" with the names, addresses, phone numbers or other contact information about its undergraduate students without the student's consent.
