Students are not required to reveal the nature of their disability to an advisor or instructor. Students must share their Accommodation Notification with instructors in order to begin utilizing the accommodations and adjustments that have been approved. The Accommodation Notification does not state personal information or reveal any details about a diagnosis or disability.
