Student Services & Resources

UW Professional & Continuing Education students have access to many UW and UWPCE services and resources.

Access & accommodations

Your experience in this class is important to us, and it is the policy and practice of the University of Washington to create inclusive and accessible learning environments consistent with federal and state law. The Disability Services Office (DSO) provides accommodation, referral information and assistance for professional and continuing education students with a documented physical, mental or sensory disability.

If you have already established accommodations with DSO, please communicate your approved accommodations to your instructor at your earliest convenience so we can discuss your needs in this course. If you have not yet established services through DSO but have a temporary or permanent disability that requires accommodations (this can include but is not limited to mental health, attention-related learning, vision, hearing, physical or health impacts), you are welcome to contact DSO at 206-543-6450 or or via their Contacts page.
