The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan welcomes individuals with disabilities in all aspects of campus life. The Office of Student Services provides support and reasonable accommodations for students, employees, and guests with disabilities. Individuals who think they may need accommodations because of a learning, physical, or psychological disability are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Services to discuss their concerns.
Like other services at UW-Sheboygan, Student Services works to address each person's concerns individually. Reasonable accommodations are provided to minimize the impact of a disability in the campus environment as much as possible, and to ensure equal access to our programs, services, activities, and employment opportunities. They include the elimination of physical barriers to campus buildings and facilities whenever possible, as well as appropriate academic and workplace adjustments. We will protect the confidentiality of any information shared.
The Office of Student Services seeks to promote academic achievement and to help students take full advantage of the academic opportunities available at UW-Sheboygan.
