Students also have the right to file complaints with the Family Policy Compliance Office (U.S. Department of Education) concerning alleged failures by the university to comply with the act. Clover University intends to fully comply with FERPA. FERPA authorizes the release of "directory information" without the student’s prior consent in accordance with what is allowable under law.
FERPA Compliance defines directory information at Clover University: Student Name, Email, Address, Phone Number, Student ID Number*, Date of Birth*, Major Field of Study, Dates of Attendance, Enrollment Status, Previous Institutions, Class Level, Degrees and Awards Received, Photographs.
*Limited Directory Information: Student ID number and Date of Birth are considered to be limited directory information, which may be used for verification purposes only, and not released as directory information. This information will be accessible to school officials, consistent with FERPA, who have a legitimate educational interest. If students wish that their directory information not be released without their consent, they should explicitly notify the university in writing.
