At Diablo Valley College, we provide all students an equal opportunity for success. Disability Support Services (DSS) ensures that students with disabilities have access to all that DVC has to offer. The DSS program offers appropriate support services, curriculum, instruction, and adaptive technology. We look forward to working with you as you embark on your college adventure.

The major objective of the Disability Support Services Office at DVC is to assure educational access for students with disabilities. DSS concentrates its efforts on providing programs and services that are not available elsewhere in the college. Authorization for each service must be provided by a DSS counselor.
It's important to know your rights as a DVC/DSS student.
