Implications of Withholding Your Directory Information

If you request that we withhold your Directory Information, all requests for information from non-institutional persons or organizations will be refused without your written authorization, except where required by law. For example, the college would be unable to verify your degree, honors, major or enrollment for possible employment, loan deferment, insurance eligibility, home mortgage application, apartment lease, etc., unless the request is accompanied by your signed, dated release. Riverland can not assume responsibility for contacting you for this authorization, nor can we accept liability for honoring your request that such information be withheld.

Your request to withhold your directory information becomes a part of your student record and will remain in effect until you instruct us in writing to remove the hold status on your record.

Authorizing the Release of Information

During the time your request is in effect, you must authorize, on a transaction-by-transaction basis, the release of information (for example, the release of an enrollment verification).  Authorization is submitted in the form of a signed and dated request.
