As a CSU student over the age of 18 years old, the information that the University can disclose about you is guided, restricted, and protected by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). 

FERPA affords eligible students certain rights with respect to their education records. (An “eligible student” under FERPA is a student who is 18 years of age or older or who attends a postsecondary institution at any age.)

Students may choose to restrict their directory information at the time of application or at any other time while the student is attending CSU. The only way that CSU will be authorized to release ANY information is if the student requests in writing that the restriction be lifted.

For more information about FERPA, you can meet with your First Year Advisor or click here.
