Confidentiality

Any information pertaining to the disability of a student remains confidential. Access to that information is given only to the associate director and director of the Academic Center for Excellence, as well as the dean of Academic Services. When a student first applies for services, the associate director may refer the documentation to a qualified consultant to be advised on the best and most appropriate accommodations for a student, as well as to obtain more professional knowledge concerning a condition.
 
If a student needs access to documentation previously submitted to the Office of Student Disability Services, the student must make a request to the associate director. The associate director will consider the reason for the request (i.e. enrolling in another school) and make a decision on access.

Files will remain with the associate director for three years following the last enrollment date of the student. After that time, the associate director will destroy the documentation.
