AccessAbility Services

New Student Accommodation Process

AccessAbility Services (AAS) engages in an interactive process with each student and reviews requests for accommodations on an individualized, case-by-case basis. Depending on the nature and functional limitations of a student’s documented disability, he/she may be eligible for reasonable and appropriate accommodations.

Steps for Accessing Accommodations: 

Step One: Students who have a WCSU Banner ID number can register online with AAS through our Accommodation Intake Form – Online Form. Alternatively, students can complete a hard copy Accommodation Intake Form. 

Step Two: Obtain appropriate medical documentation relevant to your disability. Documentation guidelines for specific disabilities can be accessed at: Documentation Guidelines.

Step Three: Upload supporting medical documentation to your Accommodate Portal. Documentation may be submitted separately by fax, mail or in person.

Step Four: You will receive an email or phone notification about your request for accommodations and the appropriate next step. Please make sure to check your WCSU email.

Step Five: Once you are approved for accommodations, it will be your responsibility to request your accommodations in a timely manner each semester.
