Confidentiality Laws

A key transition occurs when your child turns 18; federal privacy laws become applicable, protecting the confidentiality of your son or daughter. Specifically, the Family Educational Rights and Protection Act (FERPA) prohibits the Disability Resource Center from disclosing information to you about your college student. 

Without written consent, we cannot inform you what accommodations they are receiving or even whether they are requesting services from the DRC. Likewise, parent involvement in any DRC meetings with the student, must be at the student's invitation.
