Your Accommodations

During your initial meeting with SAS (your Intake Appointment), we discussed which accommodations you are eligible for based on your academic barriers due to a disability. A qualified SAS staff member made the legal decision to include any reasonable accommodations to support you while you are attending Wenatchee Valley College.

The accommodations you are eligible for can be viewed anytime in myWVC2.0 - Student Access Services portal after your Intake Appointment.  You do not have to use all the accommodations that you are eligible for but you must request the accommodations you would like to use before each quarter.

You must request your accommodations on the myWVC2.0 - Student Access Services portal every quarter, and for each course. If this is a barrier for you, please discuss with the SAS office to make other arrangements for accommodation requests.

Please remember that requests that are received after the due date may experience a delay in the processing and administering of your services and accommodations.

If you change your classes after the time you submit your request, please submit your change in myWVC2.0 - Student Access Services or notify the SAS Office, sas@wvc.edu

Steps for Using Accommodations

After your intake appointment and you have been found eligible for accommodations, you need to request accommodations every quarter. 

When should I submit my request?

All accommodation requests must be submitted 2 weeks prior to the start of the quarter.

Please remember that requests that are received after the due date may experience a delay in the processing and administering of your services and accommodations.

It is also important to remember that accommodation requests are not retroactive. For example, if you forget to request accommodations until after a test, you will not be able to go back and retake that test.

If you change your classes after the time you submit your request, please submit your change in myWVC2.0 - Student Access Services portal or notify the SAS Office.

Faculty Notification Letters will be emailed to your instructor about one week before the first day of classes.  Your student email will receive a copy as well.

How do I submit my request?

You will need to log into the myWVC2.0 - Student Access Services portal to request your accommodations for the next quarter once you have registered for courses. You will need to request accommodation services after you register for classes each quarter (give it a day or two after you register for the class registration system to show up in your portal.

Here is a video on how to login to myWVC2.0 - Student Access Services portal. 

EverettCC has a short video showing you how to request your accommodations online! 

Please check out our IT Help Center if you’re having any trouble with your SSO login!

What accommodation should I request?

You should request all accommodations that you think you may need. It is easier to remove accommodations than add them later. Remember, you can only receive accommodations after you request them!

Following up with your Instructor

After your letters have been sent out, you need to follow up with your instructors.  This should be done either through email, Canvas mail, or during your instructor’s office hours, to ensure confidentiality.

The student access office responsibilities:

  • Establish your eligibility for services 
  • Coordinate accommodations (including adaptive technology) and check out the equipment students qualify to use 
  • Keep all information about a student’s disability confidential and maintain records during your enrollment and seven years thereafter 
  • Advocate for students as needed with other departments, faculty and services 
  • Work with campus staff to provide accessible facilities, programs, and activities 
  • Make referrals and coordinate with community resources such as the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, Department of Services for the Blind, and Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic 
  • Provide advising as needed.
