Mobility services policy
Mobility services will only be provided to a student who has a verified disability
and who has disability-related functional limitations that prevent the student from
traversing distances or carrying heavy loads while on campus.
Mobility services are provided to and from classes. Other course related mobility
services must be prearranged with the mobility assistance coordinator. Students may
not, while being provided mobility services, ask the mobility assistant to stop to
allow them to socialize.
The student must be at the designated area and be ready at the prearranged time.

If excused from class early, the student either needs to wait for the scheduled mobility
assistant or have someone call the Mobility Assistance Coordinator (e.g., often the
instructor is willing to do this).
It is the student's responsibility to notify the Mobility Assistance Coordinator as
soon as possible at 925-969-2173 if s/he will be unable to meet the mobility assistant
as scheduled. Three (3) failures to notify may result in termination of this service.
The student is responsible for informing the Mobility Assistance Coordinator whenever
changes occur that affect the student's need for mobility services.
DVC does not issue disability parking placards. Students who have a designated license
plate or a parking placard issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles do not need
a DVC parking permit; they are eligible to park in any specially marked handicapped
parking space. If these spaces are full, parking is permitted in any other parking stall. Parking
in driveways, on lawns or other prohibited parking locations is not permitted.
