Disability documentation is considered confidential and does not become part of a student's academic transcript. All disability-related information is maintained in the Office of Disability Services. Disability documentation shall be released only in accordance with the law and USC Aiken policies and procedures.
Students are under no obligation to disclose their disability unless an accommodation is being requested; likewise, faculty and staff have no authority to see disability documentation or have any information concerning a student's disability without a legitimate educational need to know. Pending the receipt of appropriate documentation, Disability Services reserves the right to deny any accommodation requests.
