Disability records are confidential, maintained in the DSS office and are protected
as an educational record under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
Disability-related information may be disclosed on a limited, need-to-know basis in
order to provide accommodations and services with the permission of the student or
as otherwise permitted under the University’s student records policy.
Submitting this application is only part of the registration process. Appropriate
disability documentation supporting the requested accommodations/services is also
required. The documentation provided will be reviewed as a part of an interactive
process with the student. A personal interview with a DSS specialist will be scheduled
so that there is an opportunity to discuss disability-related needs and requests.
During a personal interview, consideration will be given to the student’s self-report,
strengths and needs, previous academic experiences and ideas regarding accommodations.
Accommodations received at another institution are not binding to Towson University.
DSS may propose an alternative accommodation that would be appropriate but which neither
the student nor evaluator has requested.
