Any UW-Milwaukee student with a disability that restricts one or more of life’s major activities may benefit from SAC services. We work with students with mobility, sensory, communications, mental, or learning differences, as well as those with basic health impairments. Students are eligible for services through SAC if they are enrolled in the university and can provide documentation of their disability.
In order to ensure timely provision of requested services, students are encouraged to provide SAC with the appropriate documentation and requests for accommodations as early as possible for a course, workshop, program or activity. Reasonable accommodations may include registration assistance, including priority registration, referrals, and general advising.

Providing academic adjustments, advocacy and liaison services, adaptive educational materials and other program assistance allows for access to university programs. SAC works closely with campus departments in identifying appropriate options and adjustments for accommodating students.
Often, having a disability involves accomplishing tasks "differently." Through our faculty and staff liaison network we continually engage in advocacy efforts and training sessions to educate the campus community on disability rights and issues.
