Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974
All student records of the California State University are kept in accordance with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) which authorizes educational institutions to release directory information on former and currently enrolled students. CSU Dominguez Hills has chosen to further limit "directory information" to student’s name, address, telephone listing, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, and the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student. CSUDH is also required by law to release specific information for U.S. military recruiting purposes. Students may request, in writing, that directory information not be released by completing a "Request to Withhold Directory Information" form available from the Office of Records and Registration, WH C290, or from the Admissions and Records Office web page at www.csudh.edu/studentaffairs/admissionsrecords/forms.shtml.
For more detailed information on FERPA and the release of student information, please consult the University Catalog or visit the U.S. Department of Education's Family Privacy Compliance Office on the internet at www.ed.gov/offices/OM/fpco.
