DSPS students requesting accommodations are responsible for providing their DSPS
Academic Accommodation Plan (AAP) to their instructors via email. The AAP outlines each student's approved accommodations. This form is emailed to the student after they meet with a DSPS counselor to review accommodations.
The AAP is sent to students electronically. Keep your AAP in a safe place as you may need it to request accommodations for subsequent terms.
Update File/Priority Registration
For continuing DSPS students:
In this appointment, students obtain their AAP for the new school year, which covers summer term up through the end of spring semester. The AAP is an important form for students to show their instructor(s) when requesting accommodations. Additionally, eligibility for priority registration is determined in this same appointment. View the
winter/spring priority registration dates or the
summer/fall priority registration dates for deadlines. Please contact DSPS at (626) 914-8675 or email
firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your "Update File/Priority Registration" appointment.
For online courses: In the event instructors need to deliver exams online, students are responsible to contact the instructor via email to request extended time, along with presenting their AAP. Reasonable notice must be given to the instructor when making such request. Instructors have been provided information with how to adjust the timer on Canvas.
For on campus courses: Adapted testing will be available in the
Learning Center (ED 113), Monday through Thursday, for students taking courses on campus. Students are responsible to contact the instructor to request extended time, along with presenting their AAP. Reasonable notice must be given to the instructor when making such request.
For online courses: Reader for online exams can be accessed through screen reading programs. If you have reader as an accommodation, you may schedule an appointment with the alternate media specialist, Laks Floriano at
email@example.com, for training.
For on campus courses: Students are responsible for presenting their AAP to their instructors along with scheduling an appointment with the
Learning Center's adapted testing services if they have a reader and/or scribe as an accommodation for exams.
The type of support depends on whether the course is online or on campus, in addition to the severity of the student's functional limitations. There are a range of assistive technology tools to assist with accessing class notes that a counselor may recommend, along with training on how to use the technology. If you have questions regarding ways of accessing notes, please schedule an appointment with a DSPS counselor.
The ASL interpreter specialist will be in contact with students who have an interpreter as an accommodation and their instructors to coordinate service delivery.

The alternate media specialist has contacted all who have checked out a smart pen or audio recorder via their Citrus College email account. Check your email for updates. Students who need additional e-text or smart pen training, have an e-text or other alternate media request, or who have questions about online accessibility may schedule an appointment with Laks Floriano at
