FERPA Release and Directory Restriction

Under provisions of the Family Educational Right to Privacy Act (FERPA, Buckley Amendment), all students are able to request exclusion from the university's electronic directory.

All first time Miami students are included in the electronic directory beginning August 1st, but the student can request exclusion from the electronic directory by filling out a form available at the University Registrar's Office.

Freshmen may do so any time prior to July 15; continuing students may do so at any time during his/her enrollment at Miami.

Exclusion requests are reflected in the electronic directory approximately 24 hours after being processed by the University Registrar’s Office. Emergency exclusions, requested by Miami University Police or the Office of Student Affairs, are processed as soon as possible by the IT Services.
