Student Privacy and ID Numbers

Privacy Rights

A student directory of names and addresses is published soon after the beginning of the fall semester. Names and local telephone numbers of all students are available on the Butler Internet homepage. If you wish to prevent the release of such directory information, you can do so by completing a form, which is available in the Office of Registration and Records, within 10 days of the first class day. The full text on the privacy rights of students is contained in the student handbook, which is available in the student affairs office.

Student Identification Numbers

Butler University uses a computer assigned number for the student identifier. New or returning students automatically will receive this number when they are admitted. Student numbers for all other students will remain the same.

The social security number will be a secondary identifier for all students. In accordance with federal and state law, you have the right to refuse disclosure of this number.
