Access Center

Welcome to the Access Center

We are happy you have chosen to attend WSU and we are eager to assist you while you are here. The Access Center provides accommodations and services to incoming and current WSU students with disabilities, psychological or medical conditions, or temporary injuries that limit their access to the WSU environment.

Some examples of the academic accommodations and services we provide are testing accommodations (e.g. reduced distraction testing environment, extended time, etc.), access to lecture material, alternative print media, and assistive technology. We also assist interested students with time management and organizational skill development.

In order to receive accommodations through the Access Center you will need to submit documentation verifying the presence of a disability or chronic medical condition and meet with an Access Advisor to determine what accommodations will be most helpful for you.  Documentation establishes the individual as a person with specific functional limitations and provides a rationale for reasonable accommodations.
