What is Student Information Release in ExpressLane?

A federal privacy law, called the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, prevents colleges from releasing information about accounts, financial aid, or student grade and scheduling records to anyone but the student.

The college has identified certain pieces of personal information that can be released to a third party without a student's expressed permission.  You can read more about Lane's policies on the release of student records here.

If you wish to restrict* or release your directory information, here is a step-by-step page on how  to do it: ExpressLane Student Information Release

It will take up to 15 minutes to update.

*Please note: If you choose to restrict your information, it will not released to anyone, including you, without a password of your choosing.  Before receiving certain services, you may be required to verify your identity with a photo ID.  Depending on the structure of your class assignments in Moodle, you may need to inform your instructor that you are now designated "Name Withheld-xxxx" in Lane's directory, and/or submit your assignments with your "Name Withheld-xxxx" designation.
