Restricting Directory Information

The Family Educational Right to Privacy Act (FERPA) identifies certain information that can be shared without a student's consent. This information is called "directory information" because it is the type of information that would typically be printed in a student directory. At UMKC, directory information includes: name, address, telephone number, email address, major, enrollment status (full or part-time), level, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, the last institution the student attended, and any participation in officially recognized sports or activities. If you wish to restrict your directory information so UMKC does not print it in the directory or provide it to other entities, you can check the "FERPA-Restrict Release of Personal Information" box and your directory information will not be given out without your consent. Note: if you elect this option, your name will not appear in the UMKC directory at all, which may make it difficult for classmates or instructors to find you if they need to contact you.

Restricting Specific pieces of information

You may choose to restrict your phone number, address or both from the UMKC directory. If you do this, your name, UMKC email and major will still display so that others can find you.

Note: You may change your settings as often as you like, but it will take at least one business day for any changes to take effect in the directory.
