Once you are registered for Fall 2021 courses please send your documentation to DSSOutreachAcrivities@dvc.edu to start the Academic Accommodation Plan (AAP) process.

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 2021. 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.  

See the "Getting started checklist 2021" (see below) to complete the registration process for incoming fall 2021 students. This will be your guide from application to DVC through registration for Fall courses and also includes receiving your Academic Accommodation Plan.
