Disabled Students Programs and 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.

Special services are provided to meet the unique needs of physically challenged students and help them achieve a successful college career.

See the Summer/Fall 2015 Checklist for DSPS Services.
