Azusa Pacific University has designated the following categories as directory information, which may, at the university’s discretion, be released to the public without consent of the student: name of student, address (both local and permanent, including email address), telephone number (both local and permanent), photographs, dates of registered attendance, enrollment status (e.g., full-time or part-time), school or division of enrollment, major field of study, nature and dates of degrees and awards received, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, and weight and height of members of athletic teams. The university will not, however, disclose or confirm directory information to the public without written consent of the student if a student’s social security number or other nondirectory information is used alone or combined with other data elements to identify or help identify the student or the student’s records.
It is the general policy of the university not to release directory information regarding its students unless, in the judgment of the appropriate record custodian or other officials with record access, such release either serves a legitimate educational purpose or is not adverse to the interests and privacy of the student. However, the student may request that certain categories of directory information not be released to the public without his/her written consent. Such requests shall be submitted in accordance with the student records policy of the university.
