Student Records

Except in limited circumstances, the College of Law will not release personally identifiable information from a student’s education record without signed, dated, written consent from the student. A student’s consent to disclose an education record to a third party must specifically identify the education record for which consent is granted, the purpose for the disclosure, and the identity of the person or entity to which the education record is to be disclosed.

Directory Information

“Directory Information” means information contained in the education record of a student that would generally not be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed.

Briefly stated, directory information may be released as follows:

MAY NOT BE RELEASED: If the student has requested that directory information be withheld, no information can be released outside of UNT Dallas College of Law except as provided by law, or to anyone within UNT Dallas College of Law who does not have a need to know.

MAY BE RELEASED: If the student has NOT requested that directory information be withheld.

The following types of student information are considered “directory” for the purposes of this policy:

  • Name
  • Address
  • COL assigned e-mail address
  • COL assigned EUID
  • Date and place of birth
  • Participation in officially recognized activities
  • Dates of attendance
  • Enrollment status
  • Degrees, awards, and honors received
  • Expected graduation date
  • Most recent previous school attended
  • Photograph

Directory Information can NEVER include:

  • Social security number or
  • Student identification number
  • Race
  • Ethnicity
  • Nationality
  • Gender

Currently enrolled students wishing to withhold any or all directory information may do so by submitting a written request to the Office of the Registrar, on a form available from that Office, before the 12th class day in the fall and spring terms or the equivalent dates during the summer sessions. For more detail about student records and circumstances when education records may be released without student consent, see UNT Dallas Policy 7.003.
