Student Privacy Policy

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln defines the following student information as public directory information:

Student name, local address, permanent addresses, telephone numbers, year at the University (i.e. Freshman, Sophomore, etc.), dates of attendance, academic college and major field of study, enrollment status, (e.g. undergraduate or graduate; full-time or part-time), participation in officially recognized activities and sports, degrees, honors and awards received and most recent education agency or institution attended.

Directory information will be available to the public upon request and may be included in student directories published electronically and in hard copy. However, students have the right to have directory information withheld from the public, if they so desire. During the first two weeks of any semester, a student who wants all or any directory information to be withheld shall so indicate by completing a form obtained from the Office of the University Registrar, 107 Canfield Administration Building South, (402) 472-3635. The student's request will be processed within a reasonable amount of time. Directory information already included in hard copy publications will be removed at the next printing of the hard copy publication.
