Section 504 states that "any information regarding a person’s 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 basis”. Simply put, faculty members do not need to have access to information regarding a student’s disability, only the needed accommodations that are appropriate and necessary to meet the student’s needs. Students may self-disclose if they feel that it will aid their Professor with accommodations and instruction.
