(Please also see the Warhawks Are Back page)


Our regular office hours are 8:00 to 4:30. Please indicate when scheduling appointments your preference for meeting in-person or virtual; please note your preferred method may depend on staff availability. Check the Warhawks Are Back page for the most up-to-date information on UWW’s COVID response.  Due to the population served by our office, all individuals are encouraged to wear a mask in our space, but especially unvaccinated individuals.  Do not come in person if you are ill; contact our front desk or your DSC to switch to a virtual appointment.

For online exams:

  • If you are approved for extended time requirements, we ask that you remind your instructors to program the extra time into the tests & quizzes.
  • If you require the use of assistive technology (such as Kurzweil or screen magnifiers), your instructor will need the online tests & quizzes to be available outside of Respondus Lockdown Browser, as it will block the use of these technologies.
  • If you require the use of live readers or scribes, and are unable to come to campus, please contact your instructors & your Disability Services Coordinator. Our office can make arrangements with proctors to utilize Webex during the exam (the test will need to take place outside of Respondus Lockdown Browser to do so.)
  • If you require breaks during tests, you should discuss additional time accommodations beyond your extended time with your DSC & instructor. There is no pause feature in Canvas tests. 

For in-person exams:

  • The normal testing request process is still in place (complete a Testing Contract for the class, and Testing Requests for each test or quiz).  However, due to space contstraints, we will be more strict on the 5 business day notice requirement.
  • Masks are encouraged for all individuals, especially those who are unvaccinated.
  • If your instructor uses livestreaming lectures using Webex or other software, notetakers will be expected to continue providing notes just as in in-person lectures.
  • If your instructor uses recordings which can be replayed or entirely text instruction, please discuss with your DSC regarding the necessity of a notetaker.
  • NO DROP-IN TUTORING WILL BE HELD DURING THE EXTENDED BREAK, March 14 th – March 29 th.
  • Both one-on-one tutoring and drop-in tutoring will be switched to online meetings through Webex. Please see ICIT’s instructions for using Webex.
  • The PA Coordinator will be in touch with students and tutors with the process for online tutoring.

Transportation during the period of alternative instruction will be on a case-by-case basis.

Aiding services will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Please inform the Aiding Coordinator at csdga2@uww.edu if you do not plan to return to campus during alternative instruction.  

Please note that aiding services cannot be provided in private residence or off-campus.
