Confidentiality

Accommodations, as approved by the Center for Equal Access (the Center), are governed by HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) and FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) privacy rules.

Records

A confidential record is maintained with access restricted to Center staff.  Information is not to be released without a student's written consent.  Faculty will only be notified of the accommodations issued, not the disability or diagnosis.  Accommodations are not part of the academic record.

If you have questions about our confidentiality policies, please feel free to ask the Center staff.
