When to See a Counselor in DSPS
Disabled Students Programs and Services provide counselors and an educational advisor
to assist students. While the student will need to see a counselor in the Counseling
Office for student education plans, Probation/Dismissal appeals, and graduation checks
to determine eligibility for degree(s)/certificate(s), the DSPS counselor or educational
advisor may assist students with other issues related to the student's disability.
The following is a typical list of reasons a student would see a counselor/educational
advisor in DSPS:
- Determination of eligibility for DSPS services
- Priority registration
- Disability related issues
- Learning disability assessment and eligibility
- Approval of requested accommodations
- Referral to outside agencies
- Crisis intervention
- Faculty/student liaison
- Access to services and accommodations
- Liaison to off-campus disability groups
To meet with a DSPS counselor/educational advisor for any of the above reasons, the
student must make an appointment through the DSPS front office staff by calling 909/384-4443.
Students must meet with a counselor/educational advisor at least once per year for
review of their progress, accommodations and academic goals.
