Future WIU Students

WIU offers the following opportunities for future students to learn about the Disability Resource Center (DRC) and WIU accessibility.

Visit the DRC

Student visits are available to those interested in learning more about services at DRC. During these visits we offer general information about DRC, explain how to connect with our office, discuss differences between services in high school and those at WIU, and answer your questions. If you are planning to visit the campus and would like to meet with a DRC staff member to learn more about services, please call 309-298-2512 or email disability@wiu.edu in advance to schedule an appointment with a staff member.

Questions About DRC

Alternative Admissions

This is not a program specifically for students with disabilities and is not a service provided by DRC. For more information about the alternative admission process, please visit Academic Services.
