Evidence of Disability

While you are the primary source of information regarding your disability, CSD may request information from other sources in order to establish disability and the impact it has on living and/or learning in a postsecondary environment. This may include documentation, which should provide information on the current impact/limitations of your condition in the postsecondary environment. Documentation may include: assessments; reports; letters from qualified evaluators, professionals or institutions; high school documentation (IEP, 504 Plan, Summary of Performance), etc. Detailed  Documentation Guidelines are available on the CSD website at https://csd.uconn.edu/documentation-guidelines/.

Please upload any relevant documentation regarding your condition(s). You may also upload documentation at any time during your program at UConn.

Release Authorizations

The Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) engages in an interactive and collaborative process with students in order to determine eligibility for reasonable accommodations. Part of this process includes the submission and review of documentation related to the reported condition(s). At times, additional information may be requested from treatment providers, parents and/or family members. Documentation provided to the CSD is confidential and only shared with others (e.g., Dean of Students, Student health Services, etc.) with the expressed written permission of the student (which may include email), or if there is a compelling reason, such as a threat to an individual’s safety and/or emergency situation. Additional information regarding confidentiality and maintenance of records is available below.

I understand that any authorizations I make here may be withdrawn by me at any time through a written, signed and dated request (which may be done via email) or in conference with a CSD professional staff member.

I give permission for the CSD to release and/or obtain information related to my condition(s) to/from the following:

Research Opportunities

On occasion, the CSD receives requests from researchers or other third parties wishing to conduct research studies. In the case where a research study, approved by the University of Connecticut’s Institutional Review Board (IRB), seeks students with disabilities as participants, CSD will disseminate information regarding details about the research study directly to students that are potential participants. The CSD will not share personal student information including names, e-mail addresses and/or other personal information with any researchers or third parties. The CSD may also survey students that use the Center’s services. The information gathered through these surveys is used for the improvement of programs and services offered by the CSD. For additional information regarding policies and procedures related to research, please visit www.irb.uconn.edu or www.csd.uconn.edu. Students may also contact Jennifer Lucia, Senior Associate Director, Center for Students with Disabilities, at (860) 486-2020 or jennifer.lucia@uconn.edu with any questions.

Please indicate your permission for the CSD to provide you with information regarding research studies:

Authorization

I understand that these authorizations for Parent/Family Memers, Treatment Providers, and Research Opportunities may be withdrawn by me at any time through a written, signed and dated request or in conference with a CSD professional staff member.

Confidentiality and Maintenance of Records

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), as amended, is a federal law that affords students certain rights regarding their education records. Education records are broadly defined as those records, files, documents and other materials that contain information directly related to a student and are maintained by the University. For the purposes of FERPA, the University considers all students to be independent. Therefore, except as provided below, information from a student's education records will not be provided to parents without the written consent of the student. For additional information regarding FERPA, please refer to http://ferpa.uconn.edu/.

Please note the following:

• The Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) is the University agent charged with the responsibility for collecting and maintaining documentation related to students’ requests for accommodations.

• Documentation provided to the CSD is deemed private and will generally be shared with others only with the express written permission of the student. The University reserves the right to share such information without consent as deemed appropriate by the University, such as where there is a threat to an individual's safety and/or emergency situation, or as otherwise required by law.

• All documents submitted to the CSD are maintained in a private, electronic case management system, known as MY Access, including information about student demographics, academic programs, documentation of the condition(s), accommodations, and student contacts with the CSD

• My Access is hosted on a secure server and does not share information with other databases throughout the University (e.g., PeopleSoft database, Dean of Students’ Office database, etc.).

• Any documents provided to the CSD in paper form are scanned, uploaded to MyAccess, and then shredded immediately.

•Access to My Access is limited to authorized CSD personnel only.
