In our student directory, Clarkson College provides extensive information about each student. You have the right, however, to withhold the disclosure of information under the Family Educational Right and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974.

It is your responsibility to direct Clarkson College to withhold information you do not wish to see released. Absent specific direction from a student (or via the student’s completion of Buckley Amendment forms), Clarkson College considers the following to be directory information:

  • Student's name.
  • Photograph.
  • Address.
  • E-mail address.
  • Telephone number.
  • Date and place of birth.
  • Major.
  • Participation in officially recognized activities.
  • Dates of attendance, degrees and awards received.
  • Most recent previous educational agency or institution attended.

The forms necessary to request withholding of information are available in the Registrar's office or on the Forms & Handbooks page.
