I am the faculty/staff sponsor for the local chapter of an honorary organization that is an officially registered campus group. The national chapter has asked me for a list of candidates so they can send membership invitations, but one of the criteria is a certain GPA. May I send them the list?
No, it would be inappropriate to provide any information that has been sorted by GPA or any other piece of non-directory information. What you may do is send the invitation mailing from here without providing your national office the list. This gives students the opportunity to self-select by responding or not responding to the invitation and keeps ASU compliant with FERPA. Note that it is also inappropriate to permit any student members to have access to candidate information, if it is prepared using any non-directory information. Developing a list of potential candidates is not accomplished centrally. Your department or college has staff with ASU data and reporting tools access who can prepare this list for you. If you have any questions about this procedure, please consult with a member of the administrative staff in University Registrar Services.
