Student Disability Services

Rights and Responsibilities

The role of Student Disability Services at SDSU is to provide accommodations and auxiliary services to qualified students. Whether you are a first-time freshman or are transfering from a community college/other university, please keep in mind that the obligations and responsibilities of the University to students with disabilities can be significantly different than those from your previous academic institution.

For additional information, please review:

Student Confidentiality

Student Disability Services practices the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which is a law that protects students' educational records and prevents the improper disclosure of these records. As an SDS student, you must sign a release of information and specify the individual you are authorizing the release of disability-related information. Without your authorization, we will not disclose information to faculty, staff, or parents. To learn more about FERPA and your rights as a student at SDSU, visit the the University's Center for Student Rights and Responsibilties.
