According to The University of Wisconsin System Policy on Individuals with Disabilities, no qualified individual with a disability shall be denied access to or participation in any program, service, or activity offered by the university. Individuals with disabilities have a right to request accommodations.
IF YOU ARE TAKING A NATIONAL EXAM (OPIc, iWPT, CLEP, etc.)
Students needing to request accommodations for a national exam must follow the request process established by the testing company. This information can typically be found on the company's website, and the process and timeline vary for each company.
IF YOU ARE TAKING A PLACEMENT TEST (Math, English, or World Language)
Students who are requesting accommodations for a placement test should not use the online registration system at the Center for Placement Testing website to sign up for a testing date. Instead, go to the UW Center for Placement Testing and follow the instructions to email your information to Tim O'Connor and begin the accommodation process.
IF YOU ARE TAKING A DEPARTMENTAL EXAM
Students seeking accommodations for departmental exams are required to follow the new student request process through the UW-Whitewater Center for Students with Disabilities. Information on the process can be found here: http://www.uww.edu/csd/apply-now. The student needs to request that CSD send their accommodations to the UW-Whitewater Testing Office. Once documentation from CSD approving the required accommodations has been received in the Testing Office, an appointment can be made by calling the Testing Office at (262) 472-5613.
Accommodations are valid for one year and must be renewed after that time. Students are encouraged to apply for accommodations as early as possible.
