DSPS (Disabled Students Programs and Services)


Although our on-campus classes have transitioned to distance education as the result of COVID-19 restrictions, our DSPS staff is still available to serve you. Our physical office is closed, but we are still working to provide remote services and support as you navigate through this difficult time.

Please call to reach our staff personally between 8:00AM and 5:00PM, Monday-Friday,
530-741-6795 or leave a message after hours and we will return your call the next working day. We can also be reached by email at dspsinfo@yccd.edu.

We miss seeing your faces and connecting with you, and we would love to hear from you!
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns, or to schedule an appointment.

Additionally, 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!

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 is to provide equal access and opportunity for individuals with disabilities while attending college.  DSPS seeks to encourage and foster independence for students’ attainment of their personal and academic goals.  DSPS levels the playing field so students with disabilities can succeed with distinction.
