The University of Wisconsin-Platteville provides you with reasonable accommodations that are individualized and based on the nature of your disability and the academic environment.

Accommodations are determined by trained Disability Access Center staff through the student’s documentation of a disability, and an interview process.


The purpose of academic accommodations is not to ensure success, but to provide access and equal opportunity.

Some of the accommodations provided at UW-Platteville are:

  • Assistive technology
  • Document conversion, such as books in audio or electronic format and print enlargement
  • Notetaking by peer notetakers
  • Recorded lectures
  • Preferential seating
  • Sign Language interpreter
  • Adaptive equipment
  • Captioning

Testing Center 

If you use testing accommodations, you may be asked to use the Testing Center, located in Karrmann Library. Accommodations offered through the Testing Center vary from student to student but can include extended time for testing, a reader, a scribe, and a reduced distraction environment.
