Access Center

The WSU Vancouver Access Center serves students with temporary, chronic or permanent physical, health, learning, sensory, or psychological disabilities by providing accommodations, auxiliary aids, and services that remove barriers to their education.

Our staff collaborates with each student individually to establish accommodations for the purpose of reducing environmental barriers impacting the student’s equitable access to campus facilities, programs and activities. We are available to address questions and assist with understanding of what accommodations are considered reasonable and equitable.

Examples of Accommodations and Services include (but are not limited to): alternative print media, alternative testing services, ASL interpreting, CART (real-time captioning) services, assistive technology and equipment, notetaking services and specialized furniture.

Event accessibility

If you are hosting a WSU related workshop, activity or event, for the purpose of reducing environmental barriers impacting the student’s equitable access to campus facilities, programs and activities, we ask that you include the following statement on all flyers, virtual or public announcements:

"If you have a disability or condition that requires accessible materials, furniture, services or assistance, please complete the online event accommodation request form as soon as possible to help us better understand your specific access needs. We will make a good faith effort to fulfill all requests, however, because certain accommodations take time to coordinate, we ask that access requests be made at least 2 – 3 weeks in advance, if possible. If you have additional questions, contact the Access Center at 360-546-9739 or email van.access.center@wsu.edu."

In addition to submitting your request form, you may contact the Access Center to discuss your requests.

Grievance procedures

WSU Vancouver students who believe they have been discriminated against because of a disability may pursue a formal grievance/compliant through WSU’s Office of Equal Opportunity. Learn more about grievance procedures.
