Hi Carol,

We went paperless about 6 years ago. I don't see any real negatives at this point, its all been good.
We now scan proof of disability and return to the student if provided by the student. Or, depending on the situation, we may copy the doc and give it back to the student and later scan. We would then shred our copy. If it is provided by a third party, we scan and shred. We started the process by scanning in our current files. Then we scanned back about 5 years worth I believe. Instead of scanning every piece of paper in the files, we created several doc types including; Documentation, Authorization for Release, and of course Misc. for other items. Basically we created categories for items that were most important to preserve.

I hope this helps. You can always email me if you'd like more information about our process.
