Section 504 states that ďany information regarding a personís disability
gained from medical examinations to the appropriate post-admission investigation shall be
considered confidential and shall be shared with others within the college or university
on a need-to-know basisĒ. Simply put, faculty members do not need to have access to
information regarding a studentís disability, only the needed accommodations that are
appropriate and necessary to meet the studentís needs. Students may self-disclose if they
feel that it will aid their Professor with accommodations and instruction.
