Release of Information


Directory Information

Student record information is confidential and private. In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), St Vladimir’s Seminary does not release student record information without prior written consent of the student. The one exception is that the seminary may release "directory information" items without prior student consent. Directory information is defined as information that would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. Designated directory information at St Vladimir’s Seminary includes the following:

  1. Name
  2. Address (local, permanent, electronic mail)
  3. Telephone number
  4. Jurisdiction
  5. Degree program
  6. Year in program
  7. Enrollment status (full-time, part-time, or not enrolled)
  8. Dates of attendance
  9. Degrees and honors received

Note: Degrees will not be verified, however, unless the student has met all outstanding financial obligations to the seminary.
