The information obtained is kept confidential and may only be used in accordance with the provisions of applicable federal laws, executive orders, and regulations.

As you consider your response to the questionnaire, please note that the legal definition of a disability is likely broader than you may anticipate and may apply to you even though you may have never considered yourself as having a disability. Please read Important Information about Self-Identification of Disability [pdf] for more information. You may also reference the federal government's Form CC-305, Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability Questionnaire [pdf].
