Education records is 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, educational records will not be provided to parents without the written consent of the student. For additional information regarding FERPA, please refer to UConn's FERPA Website. If you are a student with a disability and have provided medical documentation to the CSD, please note the following: The Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) is the University agent charged with the responsibility for collecting and maintaining disability documentation. Documentation provided to the CSD is confidential and only shared with others with the expressed written permission of the student. All documents submitted to the CSD are scanned, stored, and maintained in the Center’s electronic case management system, which includes information about student demographics, academic programs, documentation of the disability, accommodations, and student contacts with the CSD. The CSD electronic case management system is hosted on a secure server and is developed using industry best practices. Access to the system and its information is limited to CSD personnel only. Once student documents are scanned and uploaded to the system, paper copies are immediately shredded. Information will only be shared within the institutional community if there is a compelling reason, such as a threat to an individual's safety and/or emergency situation. Consent of the student will be requested prior to releasing medical/psychological documentation to a third party. Confidentiality is not maintained in the case of child abuse, suicidal or homicidal intent.
