GROSSMONT COLLEGE – The campus Disabled Student Programs and Services, or DSPS, department offers ample amounts of help for students with disabilities.

According to Glenda Wycoff, a Student Services Specialist in the DSPS office, any student can apply anytime throughout the year “with verification of disability from a licensed practitioner.” It is not mandatory for students to apply to DSPS, but it is highly recommended for students who could use help to at least stop by the office in room 58K of the modular village, she said.

Among services offered by the department are adapted exercise science courses such as swim or yoga. These classes are based around each students disability. DSPS also offers locker storage for students who cannot carry their bags and books all over campus. Other services offered may include audio books, priority registration dates, special seating and the service most used by students, extra test time.

Wycoff recommends that students with disabilities stop by the DSPS office if they have any questions about these and other services intended to help them reach their educational goals.
