Disabled Students Program and Services
The Disabled Students Program and Services (DSPS) program provides support services, specialized instruction and educational accommodations to students with disabilities so they can participate as fully and benefit as equitably from the college experience as their non-disabled peers. An educational contract is developed for each student that links goals, curriculum program and academic accommodations to his/her specific disability-related educational limitation.
Eligibility Criteria: The specific disability must be verified, and there must be an educational limitation that precludes the student from fully participating in general education without additional specialized services.
Services: Examples of services available through DSPS that are over and above those regularly offered by the college would be test-taking facilitation, assessment for learning disabilities, specialized counseling, interpreter services for hearing-impaired or deaf students, mobility assistance, note taker services, reader services, speech services, transcription services, transportation, specialized tutoring, access to adaptive equipment, job development/placement, registration assistance, special parking and specialized instruction.
