Accessibility Resources

The University of Wisconsin-Parkside seeks to ensure that courses offered at the university are fully accessible for all students. If you are a student with a disability and would like to register with the UW-Parkside Office of Disability Services to receive academic accommodations, please contact the Office of Disability Services via phone at 262-595-2372.

Note: If you are enrolled in a UW-Parkside/UW-Extension online degree or certificate program, your courses are being hosted through UW-Extension/CEOEL D2L rather than UW-Parkside D2L. This means that the way in which you access your CEOEL D2L course(s) is different than how you access your UW-Parkside D2L course(s). For more information, click on the following link:
