Our Mission

The mission of Disabled Students’ Programs and Services (DSP&S) at Contra Costa College is to provide support services, specialized instruction, and educational accommodations to students with disabilities so that they can participate as fully and benefit as equitably from the college experience as their non-disabled peers.

Confidentiality

All the services offered by the Disabled Students’ Programs and Services department at Contra Costa College, including the Learning Specialist Program, are confidential. Student records and test results will be released only with the student’s written permission.

Want To Get Started?

The first step for any student new to Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS) at the Contra Costa College (CCC) is to schedule and attend a new student intake orientation meeting. During this orientation our welcoming counseling staff will discuss your individual assessment needs, review all the relevant support services, explain DSPS policies and procedures and any other information we need to better assist you in achieving your educational goals. These intake appointments are open to incoming students who are new to CCC, continuing students who are not yet receiving services from DSPS as well as individuals who are considering enrolling at CCC.

Contact us by phone at 510.215.3969 or by email at dspsoffice@contracosta.edu to make your appointment today.

When making your appointment, please indicate if you will need accommodations during the appointment such as a reader, writer or an interpreter for the Deaf.

Additionally, if you have a written verification of disability or you have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) from high school, not over three years old, please bring it to your first appointment.
