Confidentiality

Privacy

In order to establish the need for and determine appropriate accommodations and services, students with disabilities must provide documentation from an appropriate professional that verifies the presence of a disability and describes the impact it may or will have on all aspects of the student experience.

This documentation and all related information is maintained by disability services personnel under the strictest confidentiality. All online files are password protected, and all paper documents are kept in locked filing cabinets within the two offices serving students with disabilities (and shredded by office staff seven years after the last date the student was enrolled at the college).

Information about a student’s disability-related needs (but not the documentation itself) is shared only with the student’s permission on a need-to-know basis in order to facilitate the provision of services, or under emergency conditions when necessary to protect the well-being of the student or others. It does not become a part of the student’s college record, and  there is no indication on the college transcript that a student self-identified  and/or received disability-related services and accommodations.
