DSPS Mission Statement
Our goal is to support the college student with a disability to enter campus life, its programs and activities, both on campus and through distance education. We emphasize educational achievement as well as retention and success, in both higher education and career goals. Reasonable accommodations, when eligible, are provided to minimize the effects of your disability and maximize your potential success.
Getting Started with DSPS
Students do not need to have a learning or physical challenge to enroll in Educational Assistance courses; however, in order to receive services such as notetaking, test-taking accommodations, etc., students must have written verification of an eligible disability.
Eligibility for academic accommodations is based on a student's condition which must:
- Fall within the diagnostic categories listed on Disability Verification Form, and
- Impair a major life activity, and
- Pose an educational limitation for which accommodation is required and appropriate.
Mission College uses the information requested on the Disability Verification Form for the purpose of determining a student's eligibility to received authorized special services provided by Disability Support Programs & Services. The definitions here are per the State of California Administration Code, Title 5, Section 56032 to 56044.
