Will I automatically receive services from DSP if I submit a "certification of disability" during the admissions application process?

No. Services are not provided by DSP automatically. All students seeking services through DSP must complete an application. If you are unable to complete the online application process, you can also request assistance in person from the Receptionist at the DSP office.

After applying online, you will receive an email confirming receipt of your application, the name of your disability Specialist, some useful information for you as well as a reminder to call the DSP Reception Desk to make an appointment with your assigned disability Specialist.

Please note that while it is not necessary for you to meet with your assigned Specialist before the beginning of August, anyone planning to attend Summer Bridge or who wishes to see their Specialist before or during the CalSO orientation may make advance appointments to do so.

Students who have not yet met with a Specialist for an Intake must make an appointment to meet with a Specialist to open a DSP file. Please see the Request Services page for information about the DSP registration process.
