3.2 FERPA Blocks

Harvard Enterprise Security Policy:

Policy Excerpt
FERPA permits students to request that their directory information not be publicly displayed. The Registrars of the Harvard Schools have developed a common set of forms for use by students to make such requests.

HLS Policy:

Students have the right to withhold the disclosure of directory information by completing and submitting a “Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information” form to the Registrar’s Office during the first week of the fall term. See Such requests will remain in force for continuing students and alumni until a written release has been sent to the Registrar’s Office. Under FERPA, Harvard Law School is allowed to disclose, without the student’s prior written consent, student information that is not considered directory information to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by Harvard University in an administrative, teaching, research, law enforcement, or health services position; or a person with whom, or a company with which, the University has contracted.
