Illinois Directory, How to suppress or unsuppress student information
How do I suppress my Electronic Directory entry?
Students who wish to suppress their home phone number and address in their Electronic Directory (ED) entry can do so. Students suppress their directory information by filling out a FERPA suppression form at the Admissions & Records Building.
A suppression request can also be faxed or mailed to the Office of the Registrar. The request needs to include the following information:
A statement expressing your desire to have your personal information suppressed.
Full name as it would have appeared when you attended UIUC
Full name as it is presently (if different)
Copy of a photo ID
Current email address or phone number
Office of the Registrar
Phone: (217) 333-6565
Fax: (217) 333-3100
901 West Illinois
Urbana, IL 61801
Please note that there are a few disadvantages to suppressing your information:
You can't choose which info you want to make private. It is either all
private, or all public. In other words, you cannot suppress ONLY your
address and phone number.
Third parties such as prospective employers and insurance companies
will not be able to verify your enrollment by themselves. You will have to
provide them with a transcript.
You will not be able to order or download software from the Tech Services WebStore
because the software needs to recognize you as a student or staff member
Students who had their home phone number and address suppressed in the Electronic Directory and who now wish to unsuppress it can do so. Students unsuppress their directory
information by filling out a FERPA reinstatement form at the Office of
Admissions & Records Building.
