Welcome to the Fall 2023 Semester!

Please Note:

October 11 - DSPS CLOSED (12:00 noon-3:00pm) for Student Services meeting

Welcome to Chabot DSPS! 

  At Chabot College, giving all students an equal opportunity for success by devoting ourselves to accessible education is a fundamental value.

  By joining the Disabled Students Programs & Services (DSPS) program in Building 2400 (ACE, or the Accessibility Center for Education), students are afforded the chance to get the specialized supports, tools, tech, and counseling they need to be their very best.

  We welcome students with any disability, visible or invisible, and have dedicated counseling, adaptive classes, and accessible technology to support you on your educational journey. 


We have a NEW Student Information System and
Accommodation Request tool called Accommodate, by Symplicity.
This new system will replace our old PDF and paper forms,
and all requests will be moving to being created using this new system.
You can access it via MyPortal as of Monday, September 11, 2023.

  We have created an Accommodate help page to assist you with this transition, and we will also be glad to help you as we make this transition.

  The primary access to using Accommodate will be via MyPortal, Chabot's new one-stop web resource for all your campus needs. As you are getting used to MyPortal, you can also currently access Accommodate via this direct link: https://chabotcollege-accommodate.symplicity.com/
