What does Del Mar College define as Directory Information?

Under FERPA, the College may identify certain student information as directory information that may be released to third parties without a student's consent. Del Mar College’s definition of directory information includes the following:

  • Personal data which includes: Student’s name, Address (home & mailing), Telephone (home), Del Mar College’s assigned e-mail address
  • Enrollment data which includes: Academic Program (majors & minors), Academic Level (classification), Current Enrollment Status (full, half, part-time, etc.), Attendance Dates, Degrees and Awards received.

What happens when a student's Directory Information is restricted?

  • By restricting all Del Mar College’s directory information, the student denies access to current or potential employers, other educational institutions, credit card companies, scholarship committees, insurance companies (health, auto, life, etc.) and other similar third parties.
  • The student’s directory information will not appear in the Del Mar College’s Directory of Students, Staff and Faculty published at the beginning of each academic year (fall term).
  • After a student ‘s request to restrict directory information is processed, student leaders continue to have access to the student’s directory information if he/she participates in that organization.
  • Restrictions on directory information do not apply to in-class communications.
  • Student’s name may not appear in various programs or brochures printed by the College.
