CONFIDENTIALITY

In accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), we do not release any information about a student's record unless it has been authorized by the student.

Confidentiality is maintained at all times when students become involved with Student Life's Student Accessibility Services (SAS). A student’s registration with SAS and the fact that they have received accommodations will not be identified on any official university records, test results, academic transcripts or graduation documentation.

All disability documentation provided to the office is kept secure and strictly confidential in a locked cabinet. Students' personal information is not shared with anyone without their prior informed and signed consent. 

All students registered with SAS sign a form that indicates with whom we can discuss personal information. 

For the student’s safety and privacy, SAS will only communicate with the student via email using the secure university student ID. We do not send messages to Hotmail, Gmail or other non-campus and non-secure websites.
