Students with Disabilities at UConn Stamford

We welcome all students studying at the Stamford Campus during the school year as well as intersessions to visit our office to discuss how we might help them towards academic success and campus participation. The University of Connecticut is committed to achieving equal educational opportunity and full participation for persons with disabilities. It is the policy that no qualified person be excluded from participating in any University program or activity, be denied the benefits of any University program or activity, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination with regard to any University program or activity.

Students are encouraged to self-identify on the Stamford Campus by speaking with the Disability Services Coordinator, Nicole Wasson. Students interested in receiving services should register with CSD by going to csd.uconn.edu and clicking on the “Register with MyAccess” button on the homepage. After registering online, students will need to provide documentation from their treating provider regarding their condition. Documentation guidelines can be found at https://csd.uconn.edu/documentation-guidelines/. Please note that while some Stamford campus resources are different from those at Storrs, all students receive the same level of accommodations, according to their needs and documentation.

While there is no deadline as to when this should be done, services take time to arrange. It is strongly suggested that students make requests before a semester starts or within the first two weeks of class. Some services, such as the coordination of sign language interpreters and requests for alternate media, require several weeks to arrange.

Returning students should request their accommodation letters at the beginning of each semester by going to https://csd.uconn.edu/request-accommodations/ and following the directions under “Procedure for Requesting Accommodation Letters for Returning Students”.

Student Confidentiality

All documents submitted to CSD are maintained in a private, electronic case management system. Access to these files will be limited. Specific information on a student’s disability will only be shared with the student’s written permission and/or on a need-to-know basis. This information does not become part of a student’s transcript or permanent record. Students with questions about confidentiality should contact Nicole Wasson (Room 201 or by phone 203-251-8508).
