Confidentiality of Student Records
Wentworth Institute of Technology accords all the rights under the Family Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), the Buckley Amendment, to all students. No one outside the institution shall have access to nor will the institution disclose any information from the students’ education records (except directory information) without the written consent of students. The following exceptions are permitted under the Act: personnel within the institution, officials of other institutions in which students seek to enroll, persons or organizations providing students financial aid, accrediting agencies carrying out their accreditation function, persons in compliance with a judicial order, persons in an emergency in order to protect the health or safety of students or other persons, and parents or legal guardians of dependent students.
Certain personally identifiable information from a student’s education record, designated by Wentworth Institute of Technology as directory information, may be released without the student’s prior consent. This information includes:
Name, address, major field of study, dates of attendance, anticipated grad-uation date, degrees conferred, electronic mail address and voice mail box number, grade level, enrollment status, honors, most recent education agency or institution attended, past and present participation in officially recognized sports and activities, physical factors, height and weight of members of athletic teams, photographs, date and place of birth.
A student has the absolute right to prevent disclosure of all directory information including verification of enrollment. If a student wishes to prevent disclosure, the student must complete a Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information form and file it in the Registrar’s Office prior to the end of the third week of classes in a given semester. A student’s Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information form is valid for the life of the record or until a request to reverse nondisclosure is made in writing to the Registrar’s Office.
