Attention All students: Confidentiality Policy and Opt-out Form – Spring 2019
As a student, you are covered by the LAU’s Confidentiality Policy, which restricts the disclosure of confidential information within and outside the University. In specific situations listed in the policy, LAU may release your directory information without your consent unless you opt out of such disclosure. LAU treats the following information as directory information:
- telephone number
- student ID number
- email address
- date and place of birth and nationality
- most recent educational institution(s) previously attended
- participation in sports and activities
- major field(s) of study
- enrollment status (e.g., full time/part time, campus attended, class year)
- dates of attendance at the University
- degrees and awards received
To exclude all or part of your directory information from disclosure under the Confidentiality Policy, you may complete and sign a Directory Information Opt-Out Form and submit it to the Registrar’s Office. An Opt-Out Form will take effect once received by the Registrar’s Office for the remainder of the semester in which it is received. A new Opt-Out Form must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office at the beginning of each semester.
Repeating courses NEW!
Effective Spring 2019, students are not allowed to repeat a course in which they have earned a grade above B-, or an Incomplete. When a course is repeated, only the latest grade earned in the course will be included when calculating the student’s cumulative and major GPA.
Change your password regularly and don’t share it
Passwords we use daily are the key not only to your LAU email and applications, but also to your social media, phone, bank accounts, online shopping, etc… Since you might tend to use the same password for all the above services, we highly recommend that you do not share your passwords with your friends and to periodically change them to reduce the risk of having your accounts hacked. If someone else has your password, they can access your portal, banner, financial information, and even take surveys and vote in your place.
