Important Notes: Actual costs may vary slightly. Students ride the local MTU bus for free with their UWL Student ID card. Transportation costs within the city should be very minimal as MTU bus services runs to many relevant locations within the city. All students are assessed a $25 registration fee, $6.50 Career Services Fee, and $2/per credit Canvas fee in addition to regular tuition costs. Students coming in on Plan B will not incur any tuition fees from UWL, but may be assessed these additional fees. Canvas is the online course management system used by UWL faculty and students and allows access to course-related files, electronic drop-boxes for assignments, online quizzes and tests, e-mail, and grades. As the maximum credit load is 18 credits for undergraduate students, students can expect to see a cost between $24-36 for full-time study. Initial Student ID Card is free for all UWL students. Replacement charge is $20 per card. Students will need their student ID to access their dormitories. Parking Permit fee will vary based on availability. Students are encouraged to purchase a parking permit if they will be bringing a car to campus for their exchange term. The $166/term price is for students living on-campus or wishing to park in the resident parking ramp. As parking is limited around campus, we do not encourage students to bring a car to campus unless necessary since students are able to ride the local MTU bus system for free with their UWL Student ID. Meal Plans total will vary based on the meal plans that students choose. Textbooks: UWL students rent their textbooks from campus for $87 a semester. Additional costs may apply and is based on course enrollment (lab manuals and etc.).
Comments on Problems or Conditions for Access
Most of campus is accessible for students with physical disabilities. Those with documented disabilities should work with the Access Center to construct an appropriate accommodations plan for their time in La Crosse.
With regards to local transportation, there is some wheel chair accessibility at the airport. However, there may be more limitations at the La Crosse Train station as there is only one entrance (near the center of the building) that allows for wheel chair access into/out of the building. The La Crosse train station/depot is an older building, so there may be some issues with accessibility.
Other Health Related Comments
Under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), The ACCESS Center protects qualified students enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse from discrimination on the basis of disability and assures provision of reasonable accommodations.
To determine that a student is protected by the two laws, The ACCESS Center requires documentation that diagnoses a disability and describes how the condition directly and substantially limits a major life function such as learning.
