Our Services

Student Accessibility Services offers a variety of services to our campus population. We work to provide reasonable classroom accommodations that reduce barriers students face related to a disability. Some common classroom accommodations are listed below:
  • Extended time on exams and quizzes
  • Reduced distraction test environment
  • Notetaking assistance
  • Alternative formats for texts
We are also the entity that approves housing accommodations for students living on campus, such as coordinating a single room. Our office is available to answer questions regarding service and emotional support animal policies at Carroll University. Additionally, we assist students who need accessible classroom locations due to a permanent mobility disability.

We encourage current and prospective students, faculty, staff, and other campus partners to contact us at or call 262.524.7335 with any questions or feedback related to accommodations and accessibility.
