Graduating High School Seniors Class of 2022

PLEASE NOTE: The March 25th deadline has passed for current high school seniors to complete the DSS application and participate in the DSS Registration Workshop.  This does not mean that you are ineligible to join DSS and receive an accommodation plan prior to the start of the Fall semester.
Please take the following steps to register for Fall courses and receive an Academic Accommodation Plan prior to the start of the Fall semester:

  1. Register to take Couns 095 to receive Fall course academic advising.  You can follow this guide on How to Register for Couns 095 or complete the Welcome Services  Virtual Lab request form for assistance. 
  2. Register for Fall courses 
  3. Contact our DSS office this summer after you register for Fall courses and have graduated from high school.  You will be provided with the DSS Counseling drop in times so you can meet with a DSS Counselor and create your Academic Accommodation Plan.  After signing your Academic Accommodation Plan over the summer you will be added to the invite list for the DSS Orientation Day being held in August. 

Disability Support Services conducts outreach to graduating high school seniors with IEPs and 504 plans. This process assists students in effectively utilizing DSS priority registration and receiving their accommodation plan prior to beginning their first semester of coursework.  An Academic Accommodation Plan (AAP) lists the services available to each student, such as extended testing time and note taking assistance. It is created for each individual and signed by both the student and the DSS Counselor.  The AAP must be signed and retuned to DSS in order for students to receive priority registration for Fall 2022. If any of these deadlines are missed, students must follow the process as outlined in the steps to enroll. Once the student is registered for classes, they may email DSSOutreachActivities@dvc.edu for next steps.  

Please note: ALL communications from DSS will be sent to students' Insite email. 
Students can access DVC email through the Email tile on Insite.  Please see below How To guides on logging into Insite.
