Documentation of disabilities, as well as records regarding individual student’s participation with the Tutoring Center, are considered confidential information.
Specific information on a student's disability and academic progress will only be shared with the student's written permission and/or on a need-to-know basis. This information does not become part of a student's transcript or permanent record.
Confidentiality and FERPA
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) greatly limits the amount of information the Tutoring Center and Disability Access Services (DAS) may share with parents. A student must sign a written Release of Information form to release any student information. This form must be completed by the student in the presence of the Director of Student Access and Resources, or a designated student services employee. This confidentiality waiver is valid for the length of time designated by the student. Students have the right to nullify this form at any point simply by providing such a request in writing.
The College is an equal opportunity, non-discriminatory educational institution and employer.
No person shall be denied admission, employment, or any other benefit offered by the College on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, age, marital status, or disability.
Concerns regarding assistance for students with disabilities and questions about non-discriminatory policies, including grievance procedures, should be directed to the Vice President of Student Services.
Other specialized services as deemed necessary following an assessment of the student’s special needs.
