​​​​Disabilities Support Program (DSP)


We are Working Remotely

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and our efforts to ensure your safety and the safety of your loved ones, we have transitioned from in-person to online instruction and services as of Monday, March 16. EVC and the DSP have moved our operations to a virtual/remote format through the end of the fall 2020 semester. DSP staff are available during our business hours to respond to your inquiries, and we are answering our phone. So, please call or email us so that we can assist you.

Welcome to the EVC DSP. We provide support services and instructional programs for EVC students with disabilities. Our program promotes student independence, and ensures that campus classes, facilities, and services are accessible to EVC students with disabilities.


The mission of the Disabilities Support Program (DSP) is to enable a diverse population of students with a broad spectrum of disabilities to participate in and access all aspects of the college community. The Disabilities Support Program is committed to accessibility for all students, and ensuring that EVC DSP ​students are fully integrated, productive and assertive participants in their own educational process.​


You must be an EVC student and have a documented disability that results in educational limitations to be eligible for DSP services.
