Directory information request

The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse will provide directory information related to employees and students when this information is requested. 

Information for students who have chosen not to release their directory information in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) will not be released. UW-La Crosse notifies students of the restrictions available for their directory information at the beginning of the semester. Students are allowed two weeks to understand and impose those directory restrictions before any information will be released for external requests. 

  1. External request - Individuals or organizations receiving directory data that are to be used for external or non-university business will be charged according to the extent of the data received. The information obtained is restricted to one time use by the requesting organization. Requests from external entities for faculty and staff contact information should be directed to the UWL Office of Human Resources. 
  2. Internal request - For internal use or for uses solicited by the university, student and staff directory information will be provided at no charge to the University unit using the data. Click here for an Internal Request.

*UW-La Crosse contracts with Outlook 365 as our email service provider. Any spam filtering done by that organization is beyond our control.
