Services and Support

As an online student at WSU, you have access to the same great people and excellent student services that residential students enjoy. Online students simply need to know who to contact and to be sure to allow enough time for any coordination that must take place because you are not on campus. Don't wait until the last minute. If you need special testing accommodations due to a disability, for example, you may want to make arrangements with Access Services well in advance of your first online test.
