Caring for Impacted Communities
We understand that many members of our community may be experiencing a range of emotions and challenges related to ongoing violence in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world. Our hearts go out to all those affected; our office is here to support you: More information and resources.
Mold & Mildew in Housing
Condensation can lead to mold and mildew, so make sure you have continuous airflow within your space.
Do not panic if you find mold or mildew, it is most likely mildew rather than mold. Submit a ReADY request and staff will respond to your request accordingly. For more information on dealing with mold and mildew, please review this PDF: Mold & Mildew.
Masks are strongly encouraged in the DAC offices and Testing Center. Masks available at door and upon request.
Talk to an access manager!
If you're approved for alternative testing accommodations, you must schedule your in-person tests 5 business days in advance of quizzes and/or midterms and 10 business days in advance of your final exam. Students applying reader/scribe accommodations must schedule all exams 10 business days in advance.
Students who submit late requests will be unable to test in the DAC with accommodations and will instead be required to test in the classroom without accommodation.
Emailing the DAC
When emailing the DAC, admitted students should use their Western emails. Email addresses sent to DAC from outside the University are more likely to be filtered into Junk. If you don't know how to check your Western email, click here for assistance.
DAC's general inbox can be reached at DRSFrontDesk@wwu.edu.
