Per the Solomon Amendment, institutions of higher education are required to provide “student recruiting information” for all students who are at least seventeen (17) years of age and enrolled for at least one credit hour at their institution to military recruiters.
The Solomon Amendment supercedes FERPA.
At Lock Haven University, “student recruiting information” includes the following: student’s name, home address, telephone number, LHU email address, birth date, level of education (e.g., freshman, sophomore, etc.), academic major, and campus. Colleges need not provide other information or information it does not collect or maintain.
- Information released is limited to the current semester or the previous semester. If the request is received between semesters, the requestor must specify previous semester or upcoming semester.
- Students must be enrolled.
- If a student requests that their directory information be withheld under FERPA, this protection will be honored under Solomon; the student's records will not be released.
