Disabled Students Programs & Services (DSPS)

Students with disabilities at the College participate in the same activities and courses as any other student. Specialized services and mandated accommodations are offered to provide a more equitable classroom experience and to help successfully integrate the student into college life. Services and accommodations are determined by an interactive process with a DSPS counselor regarding disability related limitations to accessing the educational environment. Interested students must meet with a DSPS counselor to apply for these services.

Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS) is located on the first floor of the Cravens Student Services Center and provides specialized instructional opportunities to qualified students. Specialized instructional programs include the DSPS High Tech Center, WorkAbility III, Social Skills 1 and 2, DSPS Transition to College, and Adapted Kinesiology courses.

The WorkAbility III program also offers specialized courses, employment counseling, and placement assistance in cooperation with the California Department of Rehabilitation.

Participation in DSPS services is voluntary. For more information, please call 760.773.2534, email DSPS, or visit the DSPS website.
