Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 states that any information regarding a person’s disability gained from medical examinations to the appropriate post-admission investigation shall be considered confidential and shall only be shared with others within the college or university on a need-to-know basis. In other words, faculty members do not need to have access to information regarding a student’s disability; faculty ought only to know the accommodations that are appropriate and necessary to meet the student’s needs.
