It is the student's prerogative
whether or not to identify her/his disability. It is also the student's
responsibility to request an accommodation. Neither you nor the
University has the responsibility to provide any accommodation which is
not requested. Nonetheless, it is important for you to make known your
willingness to provide reasonable accommodations.
The Disability & Assistive Technology Center will require written
documentation from a student before accommodations can be made.
Documentation will provide information on the student's disability and
the accommodations which may be the most appropriate and beneficial to
the student. Students, faculty, and staff should be aware that
disability documentation is confidential, and disability related
information will only be released to those on a need-to-know basis, and
with the consent of the student. If faculty, staff, or students are
questioning the student's eligibility for services, they should contact the Disability & Assistive Technology Center to address such concerns.
Any information regarding a disability
provided to the Disability & Assistive Technology Center for purposes of documenting a
disability and making requests for accommodations is considered
confidential. Due to a student's right to privacy, faculty members do
not have a right to know information which a student shares with
the Disability & Assistive Technology Center regarding her/his particular disability. Information
about the existence and details of an individual's disability will be
shared by the Disability & Assistive Technology Center on a need-to-know basis only. A student
can voluntarily choose to share information regarding her/his disability
with a faculty member. If a student does share this information with
you, please remember that the information is confidential.
