Consent to Release Student Information

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. Directory information may be released without the student’s written consent unless a “Non-Disclosure of Directory Information” form is on file in the Registrar’s Office. Students wishing to release confidential information to others or to communicate with MSU faculty or staff via the phone or email may give their authorization online in myGate.  

Here's how:

1.  Log into myGate
2.  Go to the Academics tab
3.  Click on the "Consent to release student information" link in the Student Links channel
4.  Complete the online form and click Update Consent

Consent details can be viewed or revoked at any time from the "Consent to release student information" link.

See the Consent to Release - More Details PDF for more detailed explanations.
