UWM is required to afford students with a disability an equal opportunity to participate in our programs. Sometimes this requires providing such students with appropriate academic adjustments and auxiliary aids. Examples of auxiliary aids that may be required are taped texts, notetakers, and sign language interpreters. UWM is not required to supply students with personal attendants, individually prescribed devices such as hearing aids and wheelchairs, or other devices or services of a personal nature.
