Confidentiality

All records and information related to students with disabilities are confidential and maintained in Disability Resources.  With the student's permission, pertinent information can be discussed with Lane staff and faculty who are involved in the student's educational program or others specifically identified by the student on the Disability Resources Consent to Share form.  Records can be released to another institution only upon written permission of the student.

To accomplish this, students wishing to review their DR records can contact Disability Resources (541) 463-5150 voice, 711 TTY, or disabilityresources@lanecc.edu) and arrange an appointment with the Disability Resources Coordinator or designee.
