The Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act are very clear in stating that disability related information is to be treated with strict confidentiality. This is extremely important to individuals who may wish to access their right to accommodation while minimizing the risk of stigma sometimes associated with disability.

To be eligible for an accommodation, the student or employee must present verification of disability and arrange an appointment with the Americans with Disabilities Advisor.
