Documentation & Confidentiality
All students who seek accommodations due to a permanent disability, chronic medical condition or temporary injury must submit documentation of their condition to the Access Center.
Documentation must discuss how the student is limited by their condition as it relates to the educational environment. It must be written by a licensed medical provider or a licensed counselor/psychologist. It must be on letterhead with an official signature.
We appreciate receiving documentation at least two days prior to meeting with an Access Advisor.
Examples of documentation: High school IEP, 504 Plans, psychoeducational/neuropsychological reports, letters from health care providers. Medical chart notes are discouraged.
Documentation may be mailed, faxed, scanned and emailed, or hand delivered to the Access Center office.
Mail Address: 217 Washington Building PO Box 642322 Pullman, WA 99164-2322
Location: 217 Washington Building, WSU, Pullman campus
Please refer to Documentation Guidelines for additional information.
Confidentiality as it relates to documentation:
The Access Center generally is the custodian of disability records obtained for the purpose of providing accommodations. Students are discouraged from sending disability related/medical records to Admissions or academic departments.
Disability and medical information is confidential and is not shared except where disclosure is required by law or is necessary to facilitate legitimate University processes, including granting appropriate accommodations, addressing direct threats or investigating claims or charges.
