Privacy Settings

The university designates the following categories of student information as public "directory information”; such information may be disclosed by the institution for any purpose, at its discretion.

The university makes student directory information available electronically (as an online directory). If you do not wish for your name to appear in the online directory you must restrict the release of directory information in Workday.

Current students may withhold disclosure of any category of information under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, and may use the "Manage My Privacy Settings" within Workday to restrict disclosure of directory information.

Changes to privacy settings may require up to 48 hours to take effect. Brandeis University assumes that failure on the part of any student to specifically request the withholding of public information indicates individual approval for disclosure.
