Support Services creates conditions that empower and support students with disabilities to reach their goals for learning. Support Services works in partnership with faculty, staff and wider communities on behalf of students with disabilities.

Who We Serve

We serve any students (on campus as well as online learners) who are eligible to receive accommodations at Southwest Tech, including those with:

  • various types of learning disabilities
  • attention-deficit disorders
  • all types of psychiatric disorders
  • orthopedic impairments
  • sensory disabilities
  • other health impairments
  • autism spectrum disorders

What We Offer

Support Services determines whether a student has a disability under the pertinent disability laws and approves reasonable accommodations to ensure equal access to all programs at Southwest Tech.

We also support students through a variety of other non-mandated services to encourage successful completion of their education.

How to Get Started

In order to ensure accommodations are in place when classes begin, students with disabilities must complete this process at least four weeks before the first day of the semester:

  1. Provide documentation to Support Services. For required documentation, refer to description of the type of accommodation you need or call Support Services at 608.822.2631 or 608.822.2632.
  2. Take the COMPASS test. Contact the Testing Center to make an appointment.
  3. Meet with the Disability Specialist. Contact Support Services to schedule a meeting time.
