The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Distance Learning Center works with faculty, staff, and students to promote all students’ independence along with ensuring that we are assessing a student’s ability and not their disabilities. Our faculty members work closely with instructional designers to ensure that all courses are compliant and accessible using a universal design theory. The Distance Learning Center works directly with our on campus resources to assist with approving and providing academic accommodations for our students.

Distance education students are eligible to apply for academic accommodations at any time during the year; however, academic accommodations are not retroactive so it is in your best interest to inquire and apply for accommodations at least four to six weeks prior to the start of classes. If you are not sure if you are eligible, not sure what academic accommodations are possible, or don’t know where to start, we encourage you to contact the Distance Learning Center ADA Liaison to discuss options and timelines. Appropriate documents for the physician’s documentation will be provided to you for the review process.

If you have already been issued a VISA (Verified Individualized Student Accommodation), check to see if your VISA expires at the end of this semester. If it does, please contact the Distance Learning Center ADA Liasion to have your VISA reviewed and renewed.

For more information, contact the ADA Liasion at 800.362.5460.
