Chronic Disease/Medical Conditions Guidelines

Chronic Disease/Medical Conditions


Registration materials must consist of:

-A recent evaluation (usually within 3 years, the age of acceptable documentation is dependent upon the diagnosis, current impact, and the student's request for accommodations): 

-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

-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
  • Accommodations & services that were approved
