Health care providers should submit the following information to access.center@wsu.edu. Documentation may be faxed to 509-335-8511 (confidential fax). 

  • Diagnosis of the disability/health condition.
  • A description of the current impact or limitations of the disability/health condition, focusing on barriers in the student’s educational environment. 
  • If the condition is episodic, please help us understand the impact by including:
    • Triggers and warning symptoms of onset
    • Symptoms experienced during an episode 
    • Frequency and duration of episodes
    • Care plan for management
  • Side effects of medication on the student's ability to meet the demands of the postsecondary environment (physical, perceptual, behavioral, or cognitive).
  • A description of the expected progression or stability of the disability over time.
  • Optional: Suggestions of academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids with supporting evidence may be included. The final determination for providing appropriate academic adjustments and auxiliary aids rests with the WSU Pullman Access Advisor.

Documentation should be from a qualified healthcare provider and include:

  • Contact information
  • License number
