Confidentiality

Your privacy is of utmost importance to us.

All employees of Disability Services have signed a statement of confidentiality that requires them not to discuss or disclose any information from the office or its clients.

We review the concept of confidentiality regularly.

No information about our students is communicated without express written permission of the student.

Each semester in which accommodations are requested, students sign a release form that allows us to create accommodation letters and to discuss limited information with professors, health providers, advisors and parents. We will only discuss the information that is necessary to secure the requested accommodations or to support academic success.

Use of e-Campus: Because we use e-Campus for certain accommodations (like priority registration), your academic advisors and some administrators may know that you are registered with DSS. However, detailed personal & medical information provided to DSS remains confidential and separate from University records.

As a way of supporting your academic success and persistence to graduation, we do work closely with academic advisors, counseling center, health services, housing, and other university units.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about any aspect of your academic career.
