WDT works to ensure campus accessibility for persons with disabilities, which would include, but not be limited to, admissions, services, educational opportunities, programs, activities, employment practices and facilities use/ maintenance, except where to do so would result in a fundamental alteration of the program or place undue financial and administrative burdens upon the Institute and that can be provided without lowering academic and other essential standards.

Contact for accommodations should be made as early in the semester as possible.
