Directory Information

The University regards the following items of information as “directory information,” that is, information that the University may make available to any person upon specific request (and without student consent):

  • Name*
  • Email addresses
  • Specific quarters or semesters of registration at Stanford
  • Stanford degree(s) awarded and date(s)
  • Major(s), minor(s), and field(s)
  • University degree honors
  • Student theses and dissertations
  • Participation in officially recognized sports or activities*
  • Weight and height of members of athletic teams*
  • Institution attended immediately prior to Stanford
  • ID card photographs

Students may prohibit the release of any of the items listed above (except those with an "*") by designating which items should not be released on the Privacy function of Axess. Students may prohibit the release of their name (and consequently all other information) after an appointment with a University Associate Registrar to discuss the ramifications of this action. Student thesis and dissertations can be restricted through the publishing options and embargo settings students choose during submission.

Students, faculty, and others with questions regarding student records should contact the Office of the University Registrar.
