Eligibility for Accommodation Services is determined on an individual basis for each student who applies for services. Approval for services is determined by evaluating a student's documentation of the diagnosed condition creating the barrier, the demonstrated need for the accommodation, and the student to making a request for the specific service. If a student received a service prior to attending UW-Whitewater does not guarantee that the service will be available or approved at the University level.  For more information, please contact the Center for Students with Disabilities at 262-472-4711.
