FERPA allows the release of awards earned/received and this could be considered under that category.  We do that here on our campus every semester as long as the student has not restricted their information.

We don't publish Parent Info (not even sure that can be listed as directory for FERPA - it isn't listed in the AACRAO guide).  We also do not have student email addresses designated as directory info here on our campus so we don't ever release that.  We do/will release Most recent education Institution attended but don't think we do that one often.

Subject: [TACRAO] Listserv Dean's list

Hello all,

I have received a request to provide those students that are on the dean's list; so they can submit those names to the student's hometown newspaper.

I know FERPA states that we can provide information for educational purposes. I am not seeing the educational purpose on this one. Please help. Do colleges submit such information? I have seen it at the high school level.

The information they are asking for: the highlighted information is part of our directory information.

Student Name, city, state, zip code, parents' names, high school attended, their major, class year, their email address.
