SSWD Policies & Procedures

   General Policies

   SSWD Services

In order to provide appropriate and reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities, SSWD:


Confidentiality is extremely important in all matters pertaining to students with disabilities.  Information regarding a student's disability is only shared with other university personnel if there is a legitimate reason to do so and with the student's written permission.

Faculty members are not told the specific nature of a student's disability, unless the student provides SSWD with written permission.  Faculty may not identify students as having a disability nor disclose their accommodations without the student's written permission.  Students are encouraged to communicate openly with faculty regarding their accommodations.

   Temporary Disability

SSWD provides accommodations for students with permanent disabilities only. Students with temporary disabilities are encouraged to contact the dean’s office of their college or school and the Wellness Center to find out what services are available to them. Examples of temporary disabilities include: a broken arm/leg, recent surgery, a short-term illness or an injury.
