WELCOME to the DISABLED STUDENT PROGRAM AND SERVICES (DSPS)


Our Charge 

Under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Orange Coast College (OCC) Disabled Student Program and Services (DSPS) will take all necessary steps to ensure that no OCC student with a verified disability is denied the benefits of, excluded from participation in, or otherwise subjected to discrimination in an education program because of the absence of auxiliary aids or academic accommodations. Participation in the OCC DSPS is completely voluntary.

Mission

Disabled Student Program and Services (DSPS) cultivate an accessible and inclusive community where students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate in all aspects of campus life. Qualified DSPS professionals demonstrate sensitivity to student needs, promote student success through equal access, and facilitate student learning through partnerships with students, faculty, and staff.


Vision

A universally accessible campus where programs, services and environments are usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for accommodations or adjustments.
