Accommodations are determined by a DSPS Counselor based on your individual needs and verified disability, offering support inside and beyond the classroom. If relevant to class time, you will want to speak with your professor(s) early in the semester to open a dialogue around the accommodations you will be receiving and how they can better assist you.
The following list includes some of the general disability groups currently receiving services at Mesa College.
