In order for students to receive academic or non-academic accommodations, UNH students must self-identify and register with the DSS office. Students must provide current documentation by a licensed or certified official that states the disability. 

DSS makes the final determination of eligibility and reasonable accommodations by reviewing the documentation, interviewing the student, and contacting the diagnostician, if needed. A prior history of accommodations does not automatically qualify the student for accommodations or services. In addition, receiving services and accommodations at another college or university does not necessarily qualify a student for the same services and accommodations at UNH. There must be a demonstrated current need specific to our academic environment that is supported by complete documentation. A brief statement listing only the diagnosis is not sufficient since a condition is not necessarily a disability. Documentation must clearly indicate that the condition results in substantial limitations in major life activities applicable to our academic environment.

Important Message to UNH Students 

DSS would like to remind students that you may request your accommodation letter(s) at this time via ClockWork, and will no longer need to make an appointment with the office to access your letters! To request your letter(s), please see the 'ClockWork Guidance' tab.

Exam Proctoring Update: DSS is ONLY able to provide limited space for those students requiring Assistive Technology. Instructors must provide accommodations to students who are registered with the DSS office, who have requested accommodation letters and developed a working agreement on how those accommodations well be met
