Students With Disabilities - UW HELP

Students With Disabilities

The Universities of Wisconsin provide full and equal educational opportunities to all students. Students are entitled to an accessible, accommodating, and supportive teaching and learning environment.

Ensuring Access

Since 1988, all Universities of Wisconsin have provided a variety of services for students with special needs, including audio textbooks, alternative testing, classroom note takers, priority registration, accessible parking, readers, equipment loan, and advising. If you are looking for additional information or resources on this topic, please visit the Americans with Disabilities Act website.

Students are best served by taking the following steps as a part of the admissions and enrollment processes:

  • Proactively disclose the need for accommodations to the campus. It is helpful to remind students that there is no automatic communication between secondary schools and institutions of higher education about an applicant’s Individualized Education Program (I.E.P.) or other accommodations.
  • Disclose requests for accommodations as early as possible. Applicants are encouraged to get in touch with the campus disability student services office early to get services set up.
