In our commitment to equity, we strive to make our classes, programs, and services accessible to all students, including those with documented disabilities. Whether you need specialized support services or assistive equipment, we are committed to working with you to find the timely support you need to thrive in your studies.
If you are a Mesa College student who has a disability (either permanent or temporary) or medical condition that impacts learning, we encourage you to meet with a DSPS Counselor to determine the accommodations that are appropriate for you. To be eligible, you will need to provide documentation of your disability or medical condition. If you are unable to provide verification but believe you would benefit from having academic accommodations, you are still encouraged to apply for services. Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted by the DSPS Office. Follow the steps below to get started!
A learning disability is a permanent (cognitive) disability that impacts the way you process, retain, and/or express information. If you suspect you may have a learning disability that has never been identified, have no history of special education, and no other verified disability that would allow you to receive services, you may contact DSPS for a learning disability assessment to help determine if you are eligible to receive accommodations.
DSPS offers students access to reasonable disability related accommodations (per Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act), which extend beyond those regularly offered by the college. Get access to alternate media, assistive learning technology, testing accommodations, captioning resources, temporary parking permits, and more. We are dedicated to your success and look forward to helping you develop an accommodations plan so you can learn in the way that is best for you.Explore current services and accommodation options
