Welcome to the Disability and Assistive Technology Center

Student Receiving DiplomaThe University of Wisconsin Stevens Point is committed to providing students with disabilities the academic accommodations and auxiliary aids necessary to ensure access to all university services, programs and activities. In addition to the university's campus wide efforts to promote access and inclusion, students with disabilities are further accommodated based on specific individual needs. The Disability and Assistive Technology Center (DATC) is responsible for determining these accommodations. We provide services and assistance to enrolled students who are either permanently or temporarily disabled.

The registration process is a complex and lengthy one (2-3 weeks). Start the process now by contacting Disability Services at 715-346-3365 or emailing datctr@uwsp.edu and/or by completeing the Request for Services.pdfRequest for Services.pdf

Before continuing, it is vital that you first read the message for new students. The content applies to ALL college students with disabilities.

UWSP has many services for students offered by various offices. Although decisions regarding disability specific accommodations are made on a case by case basis, view the Accommodations page on this website for information on services most often provided, in general, for each type of disability.

Our office is part of the University College.
