Welcome to Disability Services

Welcome to Fall 2020! Disability Services staff are here to ensure students with disabilities have equal access. Although staff are currently working remotely to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the services that we provide have not changed. We look forward to working with you!

Virtual or phone meetings are available by appointment Monday through Friday from 8:00AM to 4:00PM.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call 509-963-2214 or e-mail us at ds@cwu.edu. The contact information for individual staff members can be found on our Meet the Staff webpage.

What we do

Disability Services serves students with permanent and temporary disabilities attending Central on the Ellensburg campus, online or at any of our eight University Centers. Our mission is to make university life accessible to students with disabilities.

  • We work individually with students identifying barriers, and providing accommodations to ensure equal access.
  • We educate the campus about the needs of students with disabilities.
  • We are a resource for the campus community on disability related topics.

Disability Services is a part of the Health and Wellness team within the Division of Student Success.

Using the Disability Services Portal

Students who are seeking accommodations at CWU for the first time must complete the three step registration process. To begin the process, complete the Disability Services Application. More about the registration process.  A Disability Verification Form is available to assist you in getting the information that we need from your medical provider.

Students who have completed the registration process can log in to the Disability Services Portal to view current accommodations, print or request faculty notification letters, and schedule a time to take tests or exams in Testing Services.

I was nervous to go in and admit that I needed extra help, however everyone was extremely kind and willing to give me the time of day I needed. I felt welcome and didn't feel out of place, which doesn't happen very often.
