GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

The Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS) Department is the campus office responsible for determining and providing required academic accommodations for students with disabilities. The DSPS program provides support services, specialized instruction, and educational accommodations to students with disabilities so that they can participate as fully and benefit as equitably from the college experiences as their non-disabled peers.

Some of the services available to eligible students are listed below. Not every eligible student will qualify for every service. The accommodations that are provided to a student depend on an individual student's disability and how that disability affects their access to the education process.

Examples of services available through DSPS that are in addition to those regularly offered by the College include:

  • Testing Accommodations
  • Assessment for Learning Disabilities (limited and at the discretion of the director)
  • Specialized Counseling
  • Interpreter Services for hearing-impaired students
  • Mobility Assistance
  • Note-taking Services
  • Reader Services
  • Transcription Services
  • Registration Assistance
  • Specialized Instruction
