New Students: Welcome to WSU Health Sciences Spokane!
Disability Resources works with admitted students to provide equal access to academic programs and services on the Washington State University Health Sciences Spokane campus. To ensure the smoothest experience, please be aware of the process to request accommodations for a disability or temporary health condition. It is recommended that students begin this process once admission is confirmed at WSU Spokane.
Step 1: To request accommodations, students should submit an application through MyAccess. MyAccess is an online system that facilitates the application process as well as implementation of accommodations.
Step 2: Submit documentation verifying the presence of a disability or chronic medical condition. Please refer to Documentation Guidelines to provide information that is useful in determining not only a disability, but appropriate accommodations. Documentation may be:
- uploaded directly to MyAccess when completing the application for services
- scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
- confidential fax to 1.509.358.7983
- hard copy delivered to Academic Center 130 on the Spokane campus or mailed to:Division of Student Affairs
PO Box 1495
Spokane, WA 99210-1495
Step 3: After your application and documentation are reviewed, you will be contacted to meet with a Disability Resources Advisor to discuss the student’s barriers to access, how they affect the student in the educational and campus environment, their previous use of accommodations (if any), and the student’s current needs as they relate to equal access. Together, the student and the Access Advisor will determine the accommodations that are reasonable and appropriate for the current semester.
