The University is committed to protecting the privacy of student education and health records with the means available by law. The University will not release information from a student’s education or health record without the student’s written consent, except in the limited circumstances permitted by law. In alignment with the University and the law, Student Disability Services (SDS) may release a student’s information to other University employees on a need to know basis. Additionally, students may request, in writing, information to be released to specific persons or agencies by signing a release-of-information form. Information contained in a student's file (including personally identifiable documentation, correspondence, and accommodation records) in SDS is considered part of their educational record and is protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. FERPA also protects student health records, including psychotherapy notes and other mental health records. In addition to FERPA, various state laws, including the Illinois Personal Information Protection Act and the Illinois Mental Health Confidentiality and Developmental Disabilities Act, also protect student health records.
