Privacy

Swarthmore College respects the privacy of its students and adheres to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act regarding the privacy of student record information.  All information concerning student disabilities and accommodation is kept separately from student academic files. Information regarding student disabilities and requests for accommodation is available to College faculty and staff on a need-to-know basis. This information is not normally released to anyone outside the College without a student’s prior consent, unless otherwise permitted or required by law.

Please avoid discussing accommodations for students in public.  We encourage you and the student to meet individually to discuss your course and any accommodations arrangements.
