MyAccess Portal: Disability Resources Transitions to a New Accommodation Management System
Overview: The WSU Pullman Access Center transitioned to a new online accommodation management system (AIM; MyAccess) a year ago. WSU Spokane is making that transition in Fall 2017. All notification of student accommodations and all testing procedures will now be handled through this new system. Students will request accommodations online and instructors will submit proctoring instruction forms and exams online.
Faculty Notification of Student Accommodations: Once a student has requested accommodations through AIM (MyAccess), a Faculty Notification Letter (FNL) will be generated and sent via email to each course instructor which outlines specific accommodations that are reasonable and appropriate for that student in that course. Faculty Notification Letters will be sent out starting the week of August 15. NOTE: Since these emails are generated by AIM, they may initially go to your spam folder. Please double-check, especially if your student must remind you to complete the testing form (see below).
Faculty Role with regard to Testing Accommodations: Instructors play an active role with students receiving testing accommodations. Before your students can actually register (through MyAccess) to take their exams at the Access Center, instructors must first complete and submit an Alternative Testing Agreement form (i.e. a proctoring instruction form) through AIM. The link to this form is located inside a red box within each Faculty Notification Letter (FNL).
Thank you for your support and cooperation as we move to this online system. Please contact the Liz West with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org; 509-358-7534).
