Center for Students with Disabilities

The mission of the Center for Students with Disability (CSD; also known as DSPS) ensures that students with disabilities have equal access to all programs and activities on campus.  Our goal is to encourage and promote independence in students so they may achieve their full potential.  We continuously strive to provide the highest quality programs and services to our students with disabilities.  In this effort, we offer a whole array of services to support our students' success in their classes and other campus programs and activities.  These services include, but are not limited to, academic and personal counseling, support classes, assistive technologies, learning disability and acquired brain injury assessments, alternate media, interpreting and captioning, testing accommodations, and note-taking.
