Any information pertaining to the disability and/or medical/mental health condition of a student remains confidential. Access to confidential information is given only to relevant staff within Academic Excellence Programs (Student Disability Services) and the Assistant Dean of Academic Services, if needed. When a student first applies for services, Student Disability Services staff 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 Student Disability Services, the student must make a request via email to the associate director of Academic Excellence Programs, detailing what information is to be released, why and how the information will be used. The associate director will consider the request and make a decision on access.

As all files through Student Disability Services are digital, all digital files will remain with Student Disability Services indefinitely. 
Questions concerning the confidentiality of disability-related information can be directed to the Associate Director of Academic Excellence Programs at (813) 257-5757or disability.services@ut.edu
