Services & Access

WVC Special Populations/Disability Support Services

Wenatchee Valley College supports the right of accessible education for students with disabilities.

Wenatchee Valley College serves the educational and cultural needs of its communities…proudly educating people, enriching communities and transforming lives. WVC's services are extended to all students, including students with disabilities, through the student access office/disability support services.

The goal of this office is to minimize the impact conditions may have on the education of students with disabilities. This office provides the means for students with disabilities to integrate fully into all Wenatchee Valley College activities. We are responsible, within reason, to remove physical barriers that would prevent participation in college programs.
