Policy for Review of Personal Records by Students 

Students that wish to see their file should make a request to DR.

An appropriate DR staff member will review the student's file with him/her. Any questions regarding disability documentation will be answered to the best of the staff member's ability. Students are encouraged to contact the author of their disability documentation to discuss questions, comments, or concerns.
