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.
Please be aware that we do not have a transportation program or wheelchairs available for students with disabilities. Campus map with accessible parking and path information (PDF)
Services and accommodations are available for eligible students with disabilities, psychological or medical conditions, or temporary injuries that limit their access to the educational environment.

Examples of the services and accommodations we provide include alternative print media, adaptive furniture, note taking and alternative testing services (such as extended time, distraction-reduced testing environment, etc.).
- Testing—For questions about your exam schedule, or to reschedule an exam or quiz, contact the Testing Services Assistant.
- Interpreters—Request an interpreter for an event or meeting.
To request disability-related accommodations for an event, make the request as soon as possible to the Access Center, 360-546-9238, firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make a good faith effort to fulfill advance requests.
