FERPA Scenario Q&A
Question: You receive a call from a recruiting firm asking for names and campus addresses of students with a GPA of 3.0 or better. They say they have good job information for these students. Can you help these students get jobs by giving out this information?
Answer: No. Because the request is from a source outside of the University, it should be referred to the Office of the Registrar. The Registrar's office will not release the list because grade point averages are not directory information.
* General Rule: Do not give out student information that pertains to grade point averages to anyone without prior written permission of that student. ALL outside requests for any information such as Dean's Lists must be referred to the Office of the. Registrar. Information about the recruiting firm could be provided to students in the appropriate major and to the Career Development Center.
