DSPS Application Process
Students must follow the steps outlined below to register with DSPS and have their disability-related academic accommodations authorized.
1. Obtain disability verification from a qualified professional.
Students must provide DSPS with documentation of their disability and meet with a DSPS Professional in order to receive services. Students without current disability verification should do the following:
Print out a Disability Verification Form (pdf) and have it completed by a licensed professional qualified to diagnose the disability.
2. Schedule an appointment to meet with a DSPS professional.
Students must phone us at (714) 628-4860 to schedule an appointment to have their accommodation needs evaluated. At the appointment, students complete a DSPS application for services and discuss the accommodations they require with the DSPS professional.
3. Request DSPS accommodations at least two weeks before they are needed
Students are expected to request accommodations in a timely manner so there is ample opportunity to implement required services.
