Discrimination Because of Physical Condition or a Developmental Disability in Postsecondary Education

The Law

Section 106.56 of the Wisconsin Statutes prohibits educational institutions offering postsecondary educational programs or vocational training from discriminating in admission practices because of physical condition or a developmental disability.  This prohibition applies to admission to the school, institution, course, program, or any curricular or extracurricular activity.


This section is enforced by filing a Complaint with the Division within 300 days of the alleged discriminatory act.
