How do I know if a student has requested their information to be confidential?
In the csug_gp_demo view, there is a field titled confidentiality_ind. If that column is ‘Y’, the student has requested that all of their information, including what is considered by CSU to be directory information, to be confidential. This means you cannot release or publish any information about that student and you cannot contact that student without the student presenting a photo id in person to you. This is similar to seeing the red confidential flag on the top of the ARIESweb screen when you look up the student. Please respect these students choice not to have their information released. Release of information for a student with a confidentiality_ind of ‘Y’ is a violation of FERPA regulations.
