Students must inform the college if they do not want this information disclosed by filing a written request at the Admissions and Registration Office not later than three weeks after the student has enrolled in the current term. Information: name; address (including email address); telephone number; dates of attendance; date/place of birth; degrees and awards received; participation in officially recognized activities and sports; major field of study; and most recent previous institution attended.
