For our students who are leaving UT, this will be your last newsletter from SSD. You will receive an individual email from SSD once your file is inactivated. Your SSD file will be kept according to our record retention policy, so plan accordingly if you need copies of your documentation or proof of your accommodations. You can find more information online at SSD’s Reactivation and Maintenance of Records .
