Voluntary Disclosure of a Disability

NIU employees can confidentially disclose a disability by self-identifying in the MyNIU Human Resources System. NIU collects this information to ensure compliance with state and federal reporting requirements. To voluntarily disclose a disability please take the following steps:

  1. Go to MyNIU.
  2. Click on the "MyNIU Human Resource System" panel.
  3. Login with your NIU user ID and password.
  4. Select the "Personal Details" tile.
  5. Click on “Disability” in the left menu.
  6. Check the appropriate boxes on the page.
  7. Click the “Submit” button.

Voluntarily disclosing a disability does not constitute a request for a reasonable accommodation, nor notify the university that an accommodation is being requested. Learn more about requesting an accommodation. For more information, view NIU's policy on Employment and Accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
