Disabled Students Program

The DSP provides academic accommodations to students with disabilities. Students with disabilities are responsible for ensuring that DSP is aware of their disabilities and for providing DSP with appropriate documentation. DSP is located at 2120 Student Resource Building and serves as the campus liaison regarding issues and regulations related to students with disabilities. The DSP staff works in an advisory capacity with a variety of campus departments to ensure that equal access is provided to all disabled students. As Graduate Student, you have access to:


Extended time to degree plans

DSP in coordination with Graduate Division as well as providers and/or treatment team may work to create an extended time to degree plan that allows graduate students to maintain good academic standing while taking fewer courses per quarter or taking a longer time to complete program milestones. 

Comprehensive exam accommodations

DSP may work with department and faculty to address barriers introduced by some formats of comprehensive exams. DSP will coordinate with student and department to address inclusivity of format and recommend accessible modifications which may include extended time, modified exam format, etc.
