Eligibility Determination

Once all application materials have been submitted and reviewed, ODS will contact you via WSU email and U.S. Mail, to provide instructions for the next step in arranging your accommodations. (This may include the submission of additional documentation.)  

When you receive a letter inviting you to schedule a pre-service interview, you are ready to complete the final step in the application process: to meet with your ODS counselor for an individual interview. During your interview, you will discuss:

  • your eligibility for accommodations/services
  • how to set up services for each term
  • how to inform faculty of your accommodations
  • any questions or concerns you have regarding your accommodations

All documents submitted to ODS are placed in a confidential student file and will not be returned to the applicant, nor forwarded to any agency or other college or university. ODS does not share disability information with any other campus units without prior consent from the student. ODS suggests that students submit copies, keeping the original documents for personal records.
