Confidentiality

Caltech recognizes that student disability records contain confidential information and as such documentation of a student's disability is maintained in a confidential file at CASS. Although disability and accommodation records are considered part of the student's educational record, documentation concerning disabilities is separate from the student's general academic record. Eligibility for disability accommodations will not appear on a student's transcript.

CASS will maintain the confidentiality of all student records as required by law. Students are informed of their confidentiality rights during their first meeting with CASS.
