Solomon Amendment

Effective October 23, 1998, all Colleges and Universities are required to comply with the final regulations of the Solomon Amendment. Failure to comply may result in the loss of federal funding including various forms of federal student aid. The purpose of this document is to explain the procedures at Bradley University regarding compliance with the Solomon Amendment.

The Solomon Amendment supercedes FERPA. Solomon is based on the definition of "Student Recruitment Information."

Definition - Student Recruitment Information

  1. Name
  2. Address (local, permanent)
  3. Telephone number (local, permanent)
  4. Age
  5. Major
  6. Class Level (e.g. First-Year, Sophomore)
  7. Degree awarded
  • 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.
