Statement of Confidentiality


Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the University is responsible for maintaining confidentiality of your disability-related information. This means that DAS cannot share your disability or diagnostic information, or confirm or deny whether you are eligible to receive accommodations, with other students, faculty, staff, University officials, parents, or family members without your written consent.

Legally, faculty do not have the right to ask you to disclose your diagnosis or the nature of your disability. In some cases, students may have a reason for choosing to share this information, but students are never obligated to do so. You get to determine who knows you are registered with DAS and this information will not appear on your transcript or diploma.

Questions or concerns regarding confidentiality should be addressed with DAS as soon as possible. You may provide written consent for DAS to communicate with others on your behalf by completing a release of information through the DAS office.
