Does Yale need written consent before it discloses a student’s contact information?

In the vast majority of cases, FERPA’s “directory information” exception allows Yale to disclose a student’s name, address, Yale program, and other basic information. The complete list of information that Yale considers directory information can be found here

Please Note: Students are permitted to opt out of the disclosure of directory information, and, every year, a few students make that choice. For this reason, before you disclose directory information, you must consult the registrar of the student’s school to see whether the student has chosen non-disclosure status.
