Directory Information

Mitchell Tech acts in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) guidelines as set forth by the Department of Education. FERPA allows Mitchell Tech to release “Directory Information” to third parties without student consent.

No information other than directory information shall be released without permission from the student. Permission is valid for the current academic year. Student release forms must be electronically submitted annually. Parents/legal guardians showing proof that the student is listed as a dependent on the family’s most recent tax return may have access to the student records. At no time shall any information other than directory information be released over the telephone because the caller’s identification cannot be determined. (Policy Mitchell Tech 1061)

The Institute provides students with the opportunity to request nondisclosure of information. Students who wish to request nondisclosure of directory information must contact the Registrar’s Office to complete a Privacy-Nondisclosure Request Form.

Although directory information is public, Mitchell Tech personnel are encouraged to use professional discretion in the release of this information. Mass information requests of directory information for solicitation purposes will not be granted.
