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 2023. If any of these deadlines are missed, students must follow the process as outlined in the steps to enroll.
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.
