Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSPS) promotes the full participation of students with disabilities in all aspects of their postsecondary education. DSPS advocates and facilitates equal educational opportunities through appropriate support services, curricula, instruction, policies and funding allocations. DSPS works to eliminate discrimination against students with disabilities and to promote their independence, growth, productivity and equality. Our goal is to provide academic accommodations and other services to assist students with disabilities in achieving their academic goals.


DSPS assists the college in complying with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which states, "no qualified individual with disabilities shall, on the basis of their disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of or be subject to discrimination under any post-secondary program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."

The purpose of Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS) is:

  1. To assist students with disabilities to be able to participate in and benefit from course and programs at the college.
  2. To assist the district/college administration, staff, and faculty in complying with legal mandates regarding access to all of its programs, courses, and services for students, staff, and members of the public who have disabilities.
  3. To provide outreach, education, and collaboration to community agencies and members of the public who serve current and future students with disabilities.
