ABAC designates the following items as directory information. The College, per FERPA, may disclose any of the following items without the prior written consent of the student unless the student files a written request to restrict directory information access.

ABAC does not publish a formal student directory; however, the items above are marked as "directory information" when published by the College. A student who does not wish that any of the directory information be made available without prior consent must complete and submit the Directory Information Opt-Out or Opt-In form to the Registrar's Office at the time of enrollment or by the end of the drop/add period each semester, requesting that directory information be withheld.
Students should consider carefully the consequences of any decision to withhold any category of "Directory Information," as any future requests for such information from non-institutional persons or organizations will be refused. ABAC will honor all requests to withhold all of the categories of directory information listed above but cannot assume responsibility to contact students for subsequent permission to release them. Regardless of the effect, ABAC assumes no liability for honoring all opt-out requests.
