Students in the School of Pharmacy who have disabilities are asked to submit a copy of their VISA to Rebecca Beebe in the Student and Academic Affairs Office prior the beginning of the semester. Students with VISAs will be required to meet with the Student Promotion and Academic Review Committee (SPARC) annually to coordinate possible accommodations in their coursework. After meeting with SPARC, it is also the student’s responsibility to provide each of their course coordinators a copy of both their VISA and Accommodation Plan from SPARC at the beginning of each semester, or as soon as a VISA is issued if the semester is in progress. The school is committed to the academic success of all of its students. Students may contact Rebecca Beebe with questions or concerns. A student may appeal a denied accommodation request through the university’s appeal and complaint process which can be found here: https://compliance.wisc.edu/ada/appeals/student/.
