A STATEMENT OF POLICY ON PRIORITY AND
IN-PERSON REGISTRATION FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee provides advance guaranteed
registration and entry to classes for any student whose disability
makes this service necessary. Provision of this service is
contingent upon the Student Accessibility Center's (SAC) approval
prior to campus registration periods.
Each individual student request for this service will be
evaluated as to reason for the need; a completed application plus
appropriate documentation, to be provided by the student, will be
required, as well as a meeting with the appropriate Program Manager.
The Student Accessibility Center will provide limited assistance
with registration for those students with severe mobility or sensory
disabilities which prevent them from registering independently.
