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.
