Disabled Students Programs and Services
For new and future students, please see the Summer/Fall 2016 Checklist for DSPS Services.
The Ohlone College Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS) is designed to open the doors to educational and occupational opportunities for students with disabilities.
Our primary purpose is to provide an opportunity for all individuals to gain maximum benefit from their educational experience. Ohlone College encourages students with physical, medical, or learning disabilities to participate within the limits of their disabilities in the same activities and courses as other students.
Specialized services and educational accommodations are provided to students with disabilities to help them achieve their educational and vocational goals. Services available include counseling; placement testing; priority registration; testing for learning disability services eligibility; college and mobility orientations; Learning Skills Program classes; adaptive physical education (APE) classes; and job placement assistance.
Educational accommodations provided are based on individual students' needs and include American Sign Language and oral intepreting; real time captioning; extended time for tests; note takers; amplification system; e-text, an adaptive computer lab, and a variety of other alternate media.
DSPS maintains a close working relationship with the Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) through frequent contacts with students' DOR counselors and through the Workability III Program.
Ohlone College provides Alternate Media services to qualified students who need materials in alternative formats such as electronic text, audio, Braille, and large print. For additional information, College Alternate Media Specialist at (510) 659-7373 or Room 7225, Building 7, second floor, Fremont campus.
