Reactivation of Files

Once registered for services, students’ files will remain active throughout their continuous enrollment at UT, unless other arrangements or timelines have been discussed. The files of students who leave the University will be placed on inactive status. Prior approval for accommodations does not mean that students will be automatically approved for similar accommodations when they return.

Students who return to the University after being absent for one or more long semesters will be asked to meet with the appropriate SSD coordinator in order to re-activate their files. Students may be asked to present new documentation depending on factors such as the length of time away from the University, date of original documentation, nature of the disability, and the original date through which accommodations were approved. Files that remain in inactive status will be stored for five years from the date they were designated as inactive.
