Access Center

Welcome to the Access Center

Who we serve: The WSU Vancouver Access Center serves students with temporary, chronic or permanent disabilities, including physical, health, learning, sensory or psychological conditions.

What we do: providing accommodations, auxiliary aids and services that remove barriers impacting the student’s equitable access to their education, programs, activities and campus facilities.

Creating a campus environment that is truly accessible and inclusive of all people requires the participation of every member of the community. To that end, the Access Center offers students and faculty consultation, training, workshops and self-advocacy skills to foster student learning and engagement in all opportunities available at our university.

Apply for accommodations

New to the Access Center? The first step in putting accommodations in place at WSU Vancouver is to submit an Access Center Student Application.

Access Center Student Application

Once this application is received, you will be contacted to set up a one-hour initial intake appointment with the Access Center Coordinator/Advisor. Before you meet for this appointment, you will need to submit documentation to verify your disability or condition. Learn more about the Access Center Student Application here.

Documentation Guidelines Health Provider Verification Form

Please note: If you are unsure if you qualify for accommodations, or you do not have documentation, or uncertain if your documentation is fully sufficient, you are still invited to complete the Access Center Student Application and we will schedule an informational appointment with you. You may still be able to receive provisional accommodations while documentation is being obtained.

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 event accommodation request form as soon as possible to help us better understand your needs. We will make a good faith effort to fulfill all requests, however, because certain accommodations take time to coordinate, we ask that you make your requests well in advance if possible. If you have questions, contact the Access Center: van.access.center@wsu.edu or call 360-546-9739.”
