Creating Accessibility for Students with Disabilities

Western is committed to accessibility and student success. We strive to ensure equal educational opportunities for students with learning, physical/medical, and mental health disabilities. Temporary medical conditions are also considered as a disability. We value each student at the individual level and, through our services, work to ensure that every student receives a valuable experience.

Access Services

Access Services leads the campus community in its commitment to recognize disability as a valued aspect of diversity, to embrace access with equity, and to design a more welcoming and inclusive environment in partnership with students, faculty, and staff. We are located in the Student Success Center on our main campus in La Crosse. As a Western student with a disability, you can register with Access Services to discuss accommodations.

  • Test Accommodations
