Requesting non-disclosure of directory information
Students who do not wish to have any or all directory information made public without their prior consent must come in person to the Office of the University Registrar (Suite 3100, SASB North) and fill a “Requesting FERPA On Student’s Record, Non-Disclosure of Information” form in order to place a FERPA Privacy Flag on their records. Students who complete the form will receive counseling on the effects of placing a FERPA Privacy Flag on their records. Students who are outside commuting distance to the UNC-CH campus may contact the Records area at 919-962-0495 for further instructions.
If a student chooses to place a FERPA Privacy Flag, it will remain in effect until the student removes it, and the student will not be able to receive any information about education records by telephone. Instead, the student must come in person and show photo ID or send a written request.
Canceling a non-disclosure request
To remove the restriction, the student must either:
- Come to Suite 3100, SASB North and complete a “Request for Removing Restrictions on Non-Disclosure of Information” form
- Send a written request to the Office of the University Registrar.
To remove a FERPA Privacy Flag, a student must come in person to the Registration area of the Office of the University Registrar (Suite 3100, SASB North) and fill out a “Requesting Removal of a Previously Set FERPA Privacy Flag from a Student’s Record, Remove Previously Set Restrictions on Release of Information” form. Students who are outside commuting distance of the UNC-CH campus may contact the Registration area at 919-962-9851 for further instructions.
Blocking certain information from the directory
If a student wishes to block certain information from the online campus directory, but does not want to place a FERPA Privacy Flag, the student may use the “Updating Personal Information” section of the directory, after signing in. For questions about restricting information, contact the Registration area at 919-962-9851.
