Center for Students with Disabilities

NEWS

Following the campus decision to extend Spring Break and return to temporary alternative instruction, the Center for Students with Disabilities will be canceling all tests scheduled for March 16th to March 20th.  Please watch for communication from your instructors regarding any currently scheduled tests.  Once your instructor has a plan for how your course will operate following the extended break, please work with your instructor and your DSC to figure out accommodation needs for the modified courses.

CSD will be operating remotely from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm Monday through Friday during the break, and 8:00am-4:30pm Monday through Friday through the end of the semester due to the COVID-19 Virus.

The main office can be reached by email at csdat@uww.edu, phone 262-472-4711. CSD staff will be available during business hours via email, phone calls and for scheduled webinar meetings. Please contact our office to make arrangements if specific assistive technology needs are required.

Instructions for using Webex for meetings.  This is an excellent option for meetings with DSCs, tutors, and instructors.

ALTERNATIVE TESTING:  Please submit all Testing Requests at least five (5) business days before the test is scheduled in the class.  You must complete Alternative Testing Contracts before you are able to submit the Requests.   For classes with all online exams, CSD will proctor the exam IF: a scribe or reader is needed and you don't have an Out of Class aide; assistive technology is needed that you do not have on your personal computer; the exam must be proctored and the instructor is unable to proctor for your full extended time.  Please see your DSC with questions.

ALTERNATE FORMATS:  Please remember to turn in your Alternative Media Requests as soon as possible. It can take 4-6 weeks from the time your request is submitted to get the converted text to you!

FRAGRANCE FREE ZONE: Perfumes, cologne, scented body spray, lotions, aftershaves, hair-care products and other scented products affect the health of many people.
