A-Number (A#) - Is it Public or Private Information? Is it FERPA protected?


Is your A# (A-number, Anumber) public or private information?

While your A# is public information, the associated password should not be shared. If you suspect someone of having accessed your account, change your password immediately.

A student who invokes their right to privacy completely disallows ALL others from viewing their student records indefinitely. This action requires ALL transactions with the student to occur face-to-face with Photo ID at Utah State University. Privacy Holds may be invoked or removed by visiting the Registrar's Office in person.


To learn more about Student Privacy Rights visit or contact the USU Registrar's Office in the TSC 246 or by calling (435) 797-1116.
