2.2.7.2 Requests for Alumni Biographical Information

Alumni Files – Information is kept in the ASCEND database, although some paper and microfiche backup files may exist as well. Vital data is documented, such as name changes, dates of birth and death, marital status changes, employment information such as promotions or announcements, questionnaires, parent/tracer information, and news clippings. Permanent files continue to be maintained after an individual’s death.

Disclosure of Information – In keeping with FERPA, only directory information will be released from the Office of Gift & Alumni Information Management. An individual may see his/her file with proof of identity.


No information is released on records marked “confidential.” Records will only forward requests for information to the individual alumnus.
