Are all the records confidential?
Yes, confidentiality is maintained at all times. A student’s involvement with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) and the fact that they have received accommodations will not be identified on any official university records, test results, academic transcripts or graduation documentation.
All disability documentation provided to the office is kept secure and strictly confidential in a locked cabinet. Your personal information is not shared with anyone without your prior informed and signed consent.
All students registered with Student Accessibility Services sign a form that indicates with whom we can discuss personal information. Parents: If your child indicates that we can discuss him or her with you, then we will do so. If your child indicates on the form that we are not to discuss issues with you, then we will respect the student’s wishes.
For the student’s safety and privacy, Student Accessibility Services will only communicate with the student via email using the secure UOIT student ID. We do not send messages to Hotmail, Gmail or other non-campus and non-secure websites.
