The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is committed to provide students with disabilities an equal opportunity to access, participate in, and benefit from any of the university’s services, programs, and activities. UWRF, as a Title II institution under the Section 504 Americans with Disabilities Act, receives federal funding and is mandated by law to accommodate students with disabilities.
Implementation of Policy:
Students in need of accommodations should submit their request to the Disability Resource Center. Students may request academic and housing accommodations through the Disability Resource Center. Accommodations will be offered to eligible students, unless the accommodation would fundamentally alter the nature of the program, service, or activity. UWRF provides students with reasonable accommodations in a timely manner.
The Disability Resource Center uses an interactive process and the use of submitted clinical documentation to determine the reasonable nature of each student’s individual accommodation request. All accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis. If denied, students will receive written communication pertaining to the reason for the denial, as well as the process used to identify determination.
