Can I restrict my directory information and still have a HireUTexas account?
In order to set up a HireUTexas account on your behalf, the following fields cannot be restricted: name, UT EID, school, major, school year, and email. FERPA mandates that if you restrict these fields, we cannot share them with the third-party software vendor that hosts HireUTexas. Current students can un-restrict their information. Alumni can contact the Office of the Registrar to request this information be unrestricted.
