Accessibility Guidelines For Students


Services & Accommodations

Golden West College is making every effort to ensure that our web pages are accessible to individuals with disabilities.

DSPS provides services for students who have a verified disability, which poses a limitation on the person's ability to academically succeed. Although not every disability needs accommodations, many do. Sometimes the educational limitations are very subtle and interfere in ways that are not obvious to the casual observer.
