General Information

Welcome to Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS) at Yuba College!

Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS) provides support services and academic accommodations to ensure access for students with disabilities consistent with the educational offerings and mission of Yuba College.

Legal Mandates

DSPS Services are guided by state and federal civil rights laws including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990( ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  These legal mandates support the provision of reasonable academic accommodations for qualified students to have access to, and benefit from, the full range of educational programs and activities at Yuba College.

Your Rights

As a college student with a documented disability, you have the right to “reasonable accommodations based upon your educational limitations” under Title 5 of the California Education Code and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  Provisions of the law state that “No otherwise qualified person with a disability in the Unites States shall, solely by reason of disability, be denied the benefits of, be excluded from participation in, or be subject to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”

Our Mission

The mission of Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS) is to promote and support access to classes, programs, and facilities at Yuba College, thereby offering students with disabilities the opportunity to participate fully in the mainstream educational experience. DSPS is committed to the establishment of a positive learning environment that is achieved, in part, through the provision of services and academic accommodations designed to meet the specific, individual needs of students with disabilities.

Yuba College understands that the transition to distance education (online instruction) may not be working for every student and has developed options for students who may have questions or need to make decisions about their courses. Please speak to your Counselor before making decisions about your class schedule. Your DSPS Family is here for you to assist with appointments, processes, accommodations, and resources during this crisis. Contact us at 530-741-6795. Stay safe!

Please note that in order to meet with one of our counselors or specialists in person, you must bring evidence of COVID-19 vaccination, or evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of your appointment. You will also need to complete the short, daily pass survey on the YC APP the day of the meeting (we can help you download the app if you’re not familiar with it). Questions asked on the daily pass survey include the following:

  1. Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms: Fever, Chills, New Onset of Cough, Shortness of Breath or Difficulty Breathing, Fatigue, Muscle or Body Aches, Loss of Taste or Smell, Sore Throat, Congestion or Runny Nose (not related to allergies), Diarrhea, Headache?
  2. Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days?
  3. Have you been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 within the last 14 days (the CDC defines close contact as being within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes total during a 24-hour period; the 15 minutes may be consecutive or non-consecutive)?

If you aren’t able to provide evidence of vaccination or COVID-19 PCR negative test results, or you answer yes to any of the questions above, your appointment will be moved to phone or ZOOM.
