It is the policy and practice of the University of Wisconsin-Stout to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and state and local requirements regarding individuals with disabilities.  Under these laws, no qualified individual with a disability shall be denied access to or participation in services, programs, and activities of the University of Wisconsin-Stout.  Academic accommodations are provided to students with documented disabilities to provide them the opportunity to show their abilities and capabilities, not highlight their disabilities.

It is the responsibility of the student with a disability to provide current and comprehensive documentation of his/her disability from the appropriate licensed professional.  This documentation should include: information from which the diagnosis was made, a description of the student's functional limitations in an educational setting, the severity and longevity of the condition, a description of the effectiveness of current treatment, and recommendations for additional treatment/assistance.  The cost of obtaining documentation is borne by the student. If the initial documentation is incomplete or inadequate to determine the extent of the disability and reasonable accommodations, the office has the discretion to require additional documentation.  Any cost of obtaining additional documentation is also borne by the student.  If the University desires a second professional opinion, the University bears the cost.

Disability Services verifies that a student has a disability and together with the students determines means of equal access and other appropriate services. Pending receipt of documentation, Disability Services reserves the right to deny accommodations or services.
