Policies and Procedures

Student Life provides accommodations and supports for students with documented disabilities in compliance with the following legislation:

Confidentiality

In accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), we do not release any information about a student's record unless it has been authorized by the student.

Confidentiality is maintained at all times when students become involved with Student Accessibility Services. A student’s registration with Student Accessibility Services 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. Students' personal information is not shared with anyone without their prior informed and signed consent. 

All students registered with Student Accessibility Services sign a form that indicates with whom we can discuss personal information. 

For the student’s safety and privacy, Student Accessibility Services will only communicate with the student via email using the secure university student ID. We do not send messages to Hotmail, Gmail or other non-campus and non-secure websites.


Student Accessibility Services provides support to students with disabilities in compliance with the following legislation:
