Confidentiality

  • Designated Office

    The Learning Assistance Center & Disability Services is responsible for securing the disability information disclosed by a student seeking accommodations. The Director of the LAC-DS is responsible for maintaining this information in confidential locked files separate from the student’s academic file.

  • Need to Know Basis

    Disability information is shared with faculty and staff on a limited “need to know” basis.  Common situations for this need include implementing testing accommodations or arranging accessible housing.

  • Disposal of Records

    The confidential file is maintained for seven years after the student has graduated or left Wake Forest University. The file is then shredded.
