  CONFIDENTIALITY:

All documentation of disability sent to the DSS office is confidential.
Information about any disability is not discussed nor revealed to any Fredonia faculty or staff without students' written permission.

The office of Disability Support Services for Students (DSS), located in the Learning Center, provides support services for students with disabilities on the Fredonia campus. The DSS office coordinates those services essential for providing the student with a disability the opportunity to be successful at Fredonia. Services range from academic assistance to assistance with residence life.

The office also works to insure that "...no otherwise qualified individual with a disability shall, solely by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from participating in any of ... the activities, courses, programs or benefits" of the college. These students' rights are protected by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as well as Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

We also encourage students to become self-advocates by learning their rights and responsibilities as well as what resources are available to assist them in achieving their goals.

The office of Disability Support Services for Students works with any state office of Vocational Rehabilitation to provide support services. If you or anyone you know qualifies for these services, please contact the DSS Coordinator, Adam Hino, at the Learning Center or email disability.services@fredonia.edu.
