  • In cases where education records contain information about more than one student. we permit access only to that part of the record pertaining to the inquiring student.
  • Records connected with an application to attend Seattle U Law if that application was denied.

Release of records

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

In accordance with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (commonly referred to as FERPA or the "Buckley Amendment") (20 U.S.C. §1232g; 34 CFR Part 99), Seattle University has adopted Student Records Guidelines (PDF) to protect the privacy of students’ education records.

Disclosure of Directory Information

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) designates certain student information as directory information. FERPA gives Seattle U Law the right to release this information without permission of students.

Seattle University designates the following as directory information:

  • Student name
  • On-campus address
  • Seattle U email account
  • Name of most recent previous school attended
  • Major
  • Dates of attendance
  • Grade level
  • Enrollment status (full/part-time; graduate/undergraduate)
  • Degrees/awards received
  • Weight and height of members of athletic teams
  • Participation in officially recognized sports and activities 
  • Photograph (used for official Seattle University functions only)

Prevent disclosure

  • Under FERPA, students have the right to withhold directory information by notifying the university.
  • A law student must file the Directory Information Remove or Prevent Disclosure (PDF) form with the School of Law’s Office of the Registrar.
  • Submit the form in person with a picture ID.

Carefully consider the consequences of your decision to withhold directory information. Any future requests for directory information from prospective employers, other schools, etc., will be refused and these entities will be told that Seattle University has no record of your attendance.

  • Directory information will be withheld indefinitely unless the request to withhold disclosure is revoked in writing.
  • Even if a student has submitted a request to withhold directory information, federal law requires the university to provide address listings for all students, on demand, to United States military recruiters without the need to obtain a student's consent.
  • Seattle University assumes no liability for consequences to you that arise from honoring your instructions to withhold directory information.
