Pre-ETS Notice

The pre-employment transition services section of the WINTAC website is undergoing review and updates based on the recent publication of the Notice of Interpretation (NOI) on Pre-Employment Transition Services in the Federal Register. We wanted to keep the pre-employment transition services information available, but we caution our users to compare the information on the site with information published in the NOI until we have completed our review and revision of the site based on the recent guidance. If you need assistance please feel free to contact the pre-employment transition services WINTAC team: Melissa Diehl @, Christine Johnson @, Brenda Simmons @, Carol Pankow @

    WINTAC has worked with Employment Resources, Inc. (ERI), the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the University of Wisconsin-Stout Vocational Rehabilitation Institute (SVRI) to design a series of web-based modules specific to the five required WIOA Pre-Employment Transition Services activities for use with students with disabilities.

  5. Making My Way through College
    Making My Way through College is a guide for any student pursuing a degree or other type of credential (e.g., certification, license) at a two-year or four-year community college, college, or university. You will find information on a variety of topics relevant to preparing for and succeeding in college and transitioning from college into the world of work. Much of the information provided is relevant to all students, but the primary focus of the guide is on navigating the college experience for students with disabilities or those who think they may have a disability.
