Start Services

Whether you’re considering attending WSU or a current student, here’s how to get started with Access Services.

Current students are encouraged to register with Access Services at any time when they are experiencing disability related barriers in the campus environment. 

New and transfer students should register as soon as possible after they are accepted to WSU and registered for classes.

Register with Access Services

To start receiving accommodations, here’s how you register with Access Services: 

  1. Complete the Access Services Registration Form
  2. Submit supporting documentation with registration form
  3. Schedule a Welcome Meeting with Access Services to identify disability-related barriers and appropriate access solutions

Supporting Documentation

Documentation is confidential information from an appropriately qualified health or other service professional who is knowledgeable about your condition. This professional might be a therapist, doctor, rehabilitation counselor, audiologist, nurse practitioner, or mobility specialist. 

Documentation can vary in length and format, but it should focus on the ways the condition currently affects you, especially in an academic setting. 

Below are some examples of useful documentation: 

  • Psycho-educational evaluation 
  • Neuropsychological assessment 
  • Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) 
  • 504 Plan -Vocational Assessment 
  • Information on previous use of accommodations 
  • Statement from health or service provider 
  • Mobility assessment 

Our team will use this documentation when we meet with you to discuss your experiences and expectations. In this conversation, we want to: 

  • better understand your experience of your condition
  • identify how it impacts you in the academic environment
  • make informed decisions to determine reasonable and appropriate accommodations

Send Documentation to:
