Chronic Disease/Medical Conditions Guidelines

Chronic Disease/Medical Conditions


Registration materials consist of:

  1. Completed Accommodations & Services Request form
  2. The most recent:
  • Copy of an evaluation which includes a diagnostic statement identifying the disability and the date of the original diagnosis; relevant historical information; age at initial diagnosis; including procedures used to diagnose the disability
  • Clear clinical statement (within the last 6 months) to include: frequency, duration, and severity of the symptomology resulting from the diagnosis and/or any medications.  If the limitations are in learning (e.g., reading, mathematics, and written expression), an appropriate psychoeducational or neuropsychological evaluation may be required to document cognitive ability/achievement.  It is helpful for a review of past and current academic achievement including past accommodations if not already stated in the evaluation

3.  It is also recommend to submit the most recent of the following documents from high school, if they exist:

  • Copy of IEP(s)
  • Copy of 504 Plan(s)
  • Copy of Summary of Performance (SOP)

Transfer Students: If you were registered eligible for accommodations and services at another College or University, please have the Disability Services office send a letter of verification of accommodations & services to UNH DSS.  Please have them include the following on their letterhead:

  • Date(s)/length of time you were eligible for services
