Welcome to Disability Support Programs and Services (DSPS)
at San Diego
Community College District
The District’s Disability Support Programs and Services provide services and courses to
support students with disabilities in the achievement of their academic and vocational goals.
This program promotes equal participation in mainstream academic programs through preparatory
and skill maintenance courses, and offers courses for personal growth.
The District’s Disability Support Programs and Services were established to more
fully accommodate the academic and support needs of students with disabilities as mandated by
Section 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The
Disability Support Programs and Services Departments of the Colleges and Continuing Education
offer eligible students access to a variety of specialized support services and assistive
equipment in a timely manner. These services are intended to assist students with disabilities
to more successfully participate in regular programs and activities.
The District’s Disability Support Programs and Services are offered at each of our
Colleges and Continuing Education. Our Interpreting Services Office and the District’s
WorkAbility III program reside at the district office.
