Requesting Accommodations

To request accommodations due to a disability on the University of Wisconsin placement tests, please follow these instructions.
Do not register for the placement tests online until you have emailed the information below and received a response from our office. Email the following information to Tim O’Connor at

  1. Name
  2. Email address you will use for placement testing registration
  3. Date of birth
  4. Campus you are planning to attend
  5. Accommodations being requested
  6. Documentation verifying the disability and need for the accommodations. This should be either a letter on high school letterhead from your counselor or someone else at the school familiar with your accommodations stating what those accommodations have been for tests such as the ACT or a current 504 plan or IEP (Individualized Education Plan). The 504 plan or IEP must be from within the last three years.

This process is completed electronically, so it is very important to list an accurate email address and one that you will check regularly.
