Drury University strictly adheres to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student records. FERPA rights transfer from the parent to the student when the student reaches the age of 18 or attends a postsecondary institution. These rights include:
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Washington DC 20202-5920
Drury University may disclose, without consent, “directory” information. The following information is considered directory information: (1) name, (2) address, including e-mail address, (3) telephone number, (4) date and place of birth, (5) major field of study, (6) part-time/full-time enrollment status, (7) participation in officially recognized activities in sports, (8) weight and height of members of athletic teams, (9) dates of attendance (including matriculation and withdrawal dates), (10) academic classification by year, (11) prospective degrees, degrees awarded, and awards received, (12) the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student, and (13) student’s photograph. Indications of religious preference along with names, addresses and telephone number of student’s listing in the information are provided to the University Chaplain.
It is often the student’s wish that information be released to parents or other designated officials who may seek information from Drury University. All students are provided with an opportunity to submit an Information Release form online allowing them to designate the names of individuals to whom information may be released. This release is operable for the time of the student’s enrollment or until such time as the student revokes access.
To access the Information Release form:
Step 1: Go to MyDrury.
Step 2: Enter your Username and Password and click Login.
Step 3: Click on the Student Tab.
Step 4: Click on Information Release (links located on the left side of the page).
Students may revoke previously granted access to information, or request the school not disclose directory information by submitting a request through the same form.
Students are notified annually of their rights under FERPA via the student handbook, the academic catalog, and online.
