DSPS Orientation

Fall 2022


The DSPS New Student Orientation will be presented in a hybrid format, on Wednesday, August 10 from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. It will be held in person in Cesar Chavez Courtyard (in front of building 2400), as well as on Zoom.


Please register here for the 2022 DSPS: ACE Orientation:



If choosing the Zoom option for the DSPS Orientation:

  • Please make sure that your computer can access the Zoom website (zoom.us) and that you have the most current version installed, in order to be able to use the breakout rooms.
  • Alternatively, you can call in to participate in the orientation via phone.
  • An ASL interpreter will be available during the orientation and the videos will be captioned and posted for review at a later time on the Chabot DSPS website.

If attending in-person, please note there will be a larger in-person only New Student and Family "Welcome to Chabot" event, from 5:00 to 7:00, over by Building 700. This second event will have a taco bar for dinner, access to represenatives from programs all across campus, and prizes, such as free backpacks, for registered students. We highly recommend also attending this larger even hosted by Student Services, in addition to this DSPS specific event.

The DSPS orientation will consist of a main session with everyone that goes over the DSPS program as a whole, including introduction of staff, and DSPS process and procedures in general, and then there will be break-out groups to cover more specific questions in more detail individually.
