Disabled Student Programs & Services
DSPS provides accommodations to help students with verified disabilities meet the academic requirements of courses to ensure the students can compete academically on an equal basis with their non-disabled peers. The department provides accommodations through support services, special equipment, specially trained staff and access to the High Tech Center.
It is the student's responsibility to initiate requests for services at Disabled Student Programs and Services. Students are encouraged to consult community agencies for services outside the scope of Disability Support Services, including attendant care, mobility training, and rehabilitation services.
Students have the right to request reasonable modifications to college requirements, services, facilities or programs if their documented disability imposes an educational limitation or impedes access to such requirements, services, facilities or programs. A student with a disability who requests a modification, accommodation, or adjustment is responsible for identifying himself/herself to the Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSPS) office and, if desired, to the instructor. Students who consult or request assistance from DSPS regarding specific modifications, accommodations, adjustments or use of auxiliary aids will be required to meet timelines and procedural requirements established by the DSPS office.
