Consent Form and Confidentiality
Applicants/learners will be required to sign a consent form for the release and exchange of personal and confidential information.
This information will be utilized during the application process to determine their eligibility for support services and/or to assist them in their educational programs.
This form will consist of a checklist citing specific organizations/position titles with whom representatives of Accessibility Services are permitted
to exchange confidential information.

There are legal/ethical exceptions to an applicant's/learner's right to confidentiality including:
reasonable suspicion that a person will harm another person or himself/herself
