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:
Major field of study
Academic classification (freshman/sophomore)
Part-time or full-time status
Participation in recognized activities and photos
Dates of attendance
Degrees and certificates
Matriculation and withdrawal dates
Memberships in national honor societies
Awards and honors
Inclusion of an individual in a group photo
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 not recorded of him or her.
Students may deny directory information or revoke and existing request to deny directory information via fax, mail or in-person by written request. Please read, complete and return the following form: Request to Deny/Release Directory Information
