3.13 Directory Information

Responsible Position




Alexandria Technical and Community College has designated the following information as Directory Information:

  • Student's name
  • Hometown
  • Program/major
  • Pictures
  • Enrollment/withdrawal dates
  • Graduation status (type of degree/diploma and date of graduation)
  • Honors/awards

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.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this policy, the following information is defined as Limited Directory Data for purposes of sharing with LeadMN so the association can communicate with their members:  Student name, e-mail address, and Student Change Code (NEW/RTN/DROP).

This information may be disclosed only in the specified applications 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. If a student does not specifically request the withholding of Limited Directory Information within the first 15 days of enrollment, it will indicate student approval for disclosure. Withholding Limited Directory information may inhibit the functionality of Office 365.
