The university receives many inquiries for "directory information" from a variety of sources including friends, parents, relatives, prospective employers, graduate schools, honor societies, licensing agencies, government agencies and news media. Carefully consider the consequences of removing items from the list. Should you ask the university not to release any or all of this information, any requests for such information from non-university persons or organizations will be refused.
For example, the university could not release your telephone number or address to a family member wishing to notify you of a serious illness or crisis in the family. A prospective employer requesting confirmation of your major field of study, address or date of birth would also be denied access to such information.
The university will honor your request to withhold any of the items listed and will not contact you for subsequent permission to release them. UW-Stout assumes no liability for honoring your instructions to withhold this information.
If you wish to suppress some or all of the information in the directory, you can do so through Access Stout.
