2011-13 UW Colleges Catalog
Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Colleges Catalog. This catalog provides important information about admission, registration, financial aid procedures, academic regulations and programs, as well as information about individual UW Colleges campuses and UW Colleges Online. It also outlines what the institution can offer and what is expected of you as a student.
Although you are enrolled at a specific University of Wisconsin Colleges campus or in UW Colleges Online, the policies and procedures are the same at all of the thirteen UW Colleges campuses throughout Wisconsin and for UW Colleges Online. Student Services and/or faculty advisors will assist you in planning your academic program and transferring to another university. Additional information on co-curricular activities, financial aid, special academic programs, and special features of local UW Colleges campuses is available in each campus Student Services Office and through UW Colleges Online for online students.
Under Wisconsin law, a student may not be denied admission to, participation in or the benefits of, or be discriminated against in any service, program, course or facility of the University because of the student's race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, disability, ancestry, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status or parental status. S.36.12, Wisconsin Statutes, also requires that the University establish policies and procedures to protect students from discrimination and report annually to the Legislature the number of complaints received in violation of this law and the disposition of each complaint.
Federal laws also prohibit discrimination against students and require that the University have procedures for complaints of discrimination on the basis of disability (s.504 and ADA) and sex (Title IX). Discrimination also is prohibited on the basis of race, color and national origin under Title VI.
