I hereby grant permission for Disability Support to release and/or discuss pertinent information concerning my disability with persons having legitimate interest in my educational success at High Point University. I understand those persons could include University officials (Office of Academic Development, academic dean, academic advisor, counselors, etc), my parent/guardian, and/or the faculty member(s) from whom my educational accommodations might be requested.

I agree to deliver my accommodation letters to my professors at the beginning of each term. I agree to work with my professors and Disability Support in making classroom and exam arrangements in a timely and appropriate manner.
