Signup Procedure for New Students
The faculty, staff and students of Disabled Student Programs & Services (DSPS) at Rio Hondo College welcomes you to our college. The path to enrolling at Rio Hondo College and securing your services through DSPS begins here.
At this time, written verification of your disability should be brought in, a Release of Information form should be signed and submitted, and an appointment scheduled with a DSPS Counselor or Instructional Specialist. Students must complete the entire application process and attend the intake appointment for DSPS eligibility to be determined.
We serve students with professional documentation of a disability, including but not limited to students with a physical, learning or psychological disability, students with a visual impairment, acquired brain injury or who are developmentally-delayed learner.
DSPS offers both classroom instruction and student support services for students with disabilities. Resource rooms and expert staff are available to students who need disability-related accommodations and support services.
A variety of support services are available to qualified students with a disability. Services include specialized tutoring, test-taking assistance, sign language interpreters and real-time captionists, Braille and non-Braille transcription services, and disability-related specialized counseling services. Other services include registration assistance, priority enrollment and a variety of assistive computer technologies which promote equal access to college instructional programs and activities for students with disabilities.
