Disabled Students Programs & Services (DSPS)

Important information from DSPS!

• Office hours are Mon-Thurs 7:30am-3:30pm. You must come into the office to request an appointment. If an appointment is available, you can schedule that appointment and return at your appointed time. If no appointments are available, you must return on another day to schedule your appointment. No appointments are available at the Chico Center or Glenn Center until the third week of the semester.

 • Please arrive at least 5 – 10 mins before your appointment. This will allow you time to complete any required paperwork, or make sure your paperwork is completed before you arrive for your appointment time.

• Don't miss your scheduled appointment. If you have scheduled an advanced appointment and you miss your appointment without providing at least 24 hours notice, you will no longer be able to make advanced appointments in our office. This is considered a NO SHOW, and due to the number of students needing to get in to see a Disability Specialist, we must ensure students can access our services. 

• Have your Class Schedule, and Grade Report with you. These documents along with any other request paperwork, should be available when you arrive to help the Specialists complete your appointment efficiently and speed you on your way. If you do not have these documents when you arrive for your appointment, you will be asked to go and get them.

Have a great semester!
 DSPS Staff


Students, new and returning to DSPS; beginning this fall semester, all students will need to provide their class schedule along with their grade report.  If you transferred from another college and will be attending Butte Glenn Community College, please obtain a copy of your grade transcript from the college you last attended for your appointment with one of the Disabilities Specialists.

ASL Interpreters Information

ASL Interpreter Application



Beginning Monday, April 28th all students, including students with a degree, will need to complete the Orientation requirement. If a student is unable or chooses not to attend Orientation, they will still have the option of registering for their classes during the Open Registration time period. Students that choose to register during the Open Registration time period will not be able to register as a Continuing Student until they have completed the Orientation requirement.  This requirement refers to all students, including students that have a disability. You must attend Orientation to be eligible for priority or continuing student registration status.


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
  • Adaptive Technology
