What is directory information?

Directory information is the information the College is able to release regarding a student unless the student requests it not to be released. Directory information includes:

  • Student name
  • Major field of study
  • Part-time or full-time status
  • Dates of attendance
  • Matriculation and withdrawal dates
  • Awards and honors
  • Mailing address
  • Academic classification (freshman/sophomore)
  • Participation in recognized activities and photos
  • Degrees and certificates
  • Memberships in national honor societies
  • Inclusion of an individual in a group photo

Implications of Denying Directory Information

If the student objects to the release of directory information, the student may deny the release of directory information by notifying the Registrar in writing.  Requests for non-disclosure will be honored until written notice is received from the student to remove the request for non-disclosure.  Please note the implications of denying the release of directory information: If a perspective employer, loan company, family member, etc., inquire about a student, they will be informed that OTC has no record of that student.  If the student calls or tries to obtain information without a picture ID he or she will be told OTC has no recorded of him or her.
