The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is committed to providing equal educational opportunities for all students. Students with disabilities on our campus are offered a variety of services to insure that both facilities and programs are accessible. The Office of Disability Resource Services can assist students in obtaining reasonable accommodations at the university.

 

In 1988, the Board of Regents passed an important non-discrimination policy for students with disabilities who attend the University of Wisconsin System schools. This policy mandates that students with disabilities will receive the accommodations necessary for them to have equal access to educational opportunities and programs in the integrated or mainstreaming setting.

 

If you have a physical, sensory, emotional, or learning disability, you should meet with personnel from the Disability Resource Services during your first semester on campus. Contact personnel at the office immediately after acceptance into the university.

 

All classroom buildings have elevators, entrance ramps and at least one accessible restroom for students using wheelchairs. Academic accommodations are arranged on an individual basis between the faculty, student and the Disability Resource Services office staff.

Students with disabilities may be eligible for services such as taped textbooks, classroom note takers, test accommodations, priority registration, equipment loan, peer support groups and advising.
