Disability and Accessibility Accommodations

If you need to request disability-related accommodations, or have specific accessibility requirements for participating in this online course, it is recommended that you become a McBurney Disability Resource Center client and meet with your online course instructor as far in advance of the start of class as possible:

Accommodation service plans can be tailored for students taking online courses, and early meetings with faculty can be used to discuss the structure of the course and the delivery of the course content to identify accommodations and accessibility features that you may need.

Academic Integrity, Privacy and Intellectual Property.

Protecting student privacy, academic integrity, and instructor intellectual property are equally critical to creating and fostering safe and meaningful campus learning environments — both physical and virtual. Just as UW-Madison instructors have a responsibility to protect your privacy as students, you have a responsibility to adhere to campus and course expectations as a participant. If you have questions about these subjects, you can consult this overview of UW–Madison’s policies.
