Requesting Student Accommodations

1. Complete Online Request for Services Form

If you are currently enrolled/accepted at CWU, or intend to enroll, you can register with Disability Services.

2. Upload Documentation Connecting Disability & Barriers

Documentation describes the disability and its impact on your academic experiences

Documentation should include:

  • Printed and signed name of a physician, psychologist, rehabilitation counselor, social worker or any authority qualified or certified to assess the disability (this person cannot be related to you)
  • A diagnosis of your disability/health condition, including if the condition is permanent or temporary
  • Description of the functional limitations that may affect academic performance
  • Rating of severity
  • A recommendation for accommodations

​Documentation Guidelines

3. Meet with Disability Service Professional

Once an application form has been reviewed, including complete documentation, a DS consultant will follow-up to schedule an one-on-one conversation. Together, we will identify barriers by discussing your disability experience and educational history. We will partner to identify strategies, including accommodations, that can eliminate disability-related barriers.

4. Notify faculty of accommodations each quarter

Each quarter, students are responsible for making accommodations requests in a timely manner.  During the initial meeting, students will learn how to request accommodations using Disability Services Portal.
