MSJC welcomes diverse learners in our college community, and as the office identified as the point of contact for coordinating accommodations for students with disabilities, Disabled Students Program & Services (DSPS) has a commitment to the academic mission and the MSJC district wide curriculum.
DSPS collaborates with MSJC instructors when students with disabilities are eligible for classroom and exam accommodations. An accommodation is a modification to a standard practice or process, without changing the learning outcome of the course or academic program. DSPS communicates with instructors (using the MSJC email system) when students with disabilities are eligible for accommodations, via the Instructor Communication Form. The Form lists what accommodations an individual student is eligible for in a term, without disclosing confidential information, such as a student’s diagnosis(es). DSPS welcomes the opportunity to provide clarifications and understanding of what accommodations a student is eligible for.
Feel free to contact DSPS with any questions or concerns you may have.
MSJC Policies and Procedures
Instructors are encouraged to understand the DSPS Policies and Procedures at MSJC, with attention to the administration of exams for students with disabilities. Through clear communication and collaboration, the exam administration for students with disabilities is a smooth and transparent process for instructors, students and staff.
