CURRENT STUDENTS: WELCOME BACK!
To Renew Accommodations:
Meet with your Access Advisor: All students wishing to receive accommodations spring semester must meet with their Access Advisor to renew services. During the first three weeks of the semester, we are offering walk-in hours. If you prefer, you may make an appointment. We suggest you call ahead to make sure your Access Advisor is available (509-335-3417).
- Sheri Bain’s walk-in hours: 8:00-4:00 M-F with scattered meetings during the first three weeks.
- Meredyth Goodwin’s walk-in hours: 9:30-5:00 M-F, with scattered meetings during the first three weeks.
- Sophia Tsai’s walk-in hours: MONDAYS 9:00-5:00 (she has meetings between 11-12 and 3-4); TUESDAYS, 1:00-5:00.
- Juli Anderson will be working on an appointment basis.
- Regular communication is critical to your success! All students are encouraged to communicate with their Access Advisor during the first month of the semester to ensure that your accommodations are going well. In-person meetings, email exchange or phone calls are great ways to communicate.

WELCOME JULI ANDERSON—NEW ACCESS ADVISOR!
Join us in welcoming Juli Anderson to the Access Center! Juli worked as our graduate assistant between 2010 and 2012. We are delighted she has rejoined our team! If you are a new student to the Access Center, you will likely meet with Juli to arrange your accommodations. In addition, most students who worked with Jake Swanke in the past will also work with Juli.
