Disability Services & Programs for Students (DSPS)

Students participating in DSPS

Disability Services & Programs for Students (DSPS) provides equal educational opportunities for students with physical, psychological, and learning disabilities. Students with disabilities are encouraged to lead active and independent lives by participating in all college programs and achieving academic and career goals. Counseling, support services, and academic accommodations are provided to students who are eligible for the program.

Academic accommodations are individually determined for students with disabilities based on the functional limitations of the specific disability. Accommodations may include testing accommodations (extra time, distraction-reduced setting, etc.), use of assistive technology or equipment (tape recorder, calculator, etc.), use of support personnel (sign language interpreters, note-takers, etc.), and alternate print formats (large print, audiobook, etc.).

DSPS leads the campus community in its commitment to recognize disability as a valued aspect of diversity, to embrace access as a matter of social justice, and to design environments that are more inclusive and welcoming. Our program provides the institution with resources, education and direct services to ensure individuals with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate and achieve.

Eligibility

Students with the following documented disabilities are eligible to receive support services and academic accommodations:

  • Mobility impairment
  • Blind and visual impairment
  • Deaf and hearing impairment
  • Psychological and mental health disabilities
  • Attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD)
  • Other medical disabilities that result in a functional limitation that affects academics
  • Students of average or above learning aptitude with a specific learning disability that significantly impacts their educational progress

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. Students must submit documentation of their disability from another school, college, or the appropriate professional. In addition, testing and assessment services are available on a limited basis.
