Dear DSP&S Student,
Welcome to our program. It is our sincere hope that our services will enhance your educational development and help you meet your academic goals. Advising, counseling, special equipment, alternate media, note takers, test accommodations, specialized classes, and other services are available but you must request these services. It is important to meet with a DSP&S Specialist to review your strengths, limitations and accommodation needs. We hope this handbook will help you take full advantage of all of the services offered at Contra Costa College.
A college catalog is available in the bookstore. The schedule of classes is available in the bookstore (SA Building), Admissions and Records (Humanities Building, Room 19). Financial Aid and Extended Opportunity Programs and Services information is available in each of the respective offices; (Humanities Building, Room 25 &23).
We strongly encourage you to take this opportunity to review the information in this handbook and use it in conjunction with information from the Contra Costa Colleges catalog and schedule of classes. If you have any questions or need further services, please contact any of the personnel in the Disabled Student Office.
