The Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) engages in an interactive process with each student and determines accommodations on an individualized, case-by-case, course-by-course basis. Depending on the nature and functional limitations of a student’s disability, they may be eligible for reasonable and appropriate accommodations. Accommodations and services are available to students attending Storrs and all of the regional campuses including Avery Point, Hartford, Stamford, Waterbury and the School of Social Work. Students at the School of Law and School of Medicine should refer to those specific websites for information regarding requesting accommodations.
How to Request Accommodations at a Regional Campus:
Requests for accommodations at any of the regional campuses are reviewed by the CSD in Storrs. In collaboration with the disability contact person at each regional campus, the CSD engages in an interactive process with each student and reviews requests for accommodations on an individualized, case-by-case basis. Depending on the nature and functional limitations of a student’s documented disability, he/she may be eligible for reasonable and appropriate accommodations. To request accommodations at a regional campus, please refer to the following procedure:
Step 1: Register online with the CSD via MyAccess. NetID and password are required for registration. An e-mail will be sent confirming registration once complete.
If you prefer to register using a paper form, please click here to view and download a Student Information Form.
Step 2: Students must provide appropriate documentation to the CSD, which establishes the need for an accommodation and relates the current impact of the condition to the requested accommodations. Guidelines for documentation are available here.
Students are advised to share the documentation guidelines with the appropriate treatment provider who can best describe the nature of the condition for which an accommodation is being requested.
Documentation may be submitted confidentially:
