The University retains the exclusive right to change, modify, or interpret, at any time, the descriptions contained in this Bulletin. The University administration and faculty, with the concurrence of the Board of Regents and the administration of the University of Wisconsin System, also retain the right to change fees and to add, modify, or withdraw courses or degree programs at any time.

Under the provision of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, a student is entitled to review any records, files, documents, and other materials defined as education records that are maintained by UW Oshkosh and are related directly to the student.

Hazardous Waste and Chemical Exposure

The University would like to relay that any persons presenting or exposing themselves in the area of chemicals (including classroom/laboratory settings and hazardous waste) do this on a purely voluntary basis. Precautions such as changing routes so as not to pass near any hazardous exposure areas or delaying enrolling or not enrolling in a class may be necessary. These areas are clearly marked on the University grounds/buildings and rooms. These precautions are especially important for people with sensitive medical conditions, which could make exposure to the substances mentioned above particularly dangerous. Women who are in their first trimester of pregnancy should avoid exposure to the above mentioned environments. Should you be pregnant it is advisable to report it to your instructor or person responsible for the environment you will be exposed to.
