Welcome to DSPS

Director's Welcome

Dear Student:

Welcome to Santa Barbara City College and Disability Services and Programs for Students (DSPS).

We are committed to creating an accessible learning community where individuals with disabilities have an equal opportunity to pursue their educational goals. We strive to empower students, foster independence, and promote achievement through self-advocacy.

DSPS is responsible for arranging reasonable accommodations for all qualified students with a documented disability. The process for obtaining reasonable accommodations is an interactive one that begins with the student’s disclosure of his/her disability. 

We look forward to supporting your success!

Jana Garnett
Director DSPS
