High School Students with Disabilities Enrolled in College Courses

High School students with disabilities who are enrolled in college courses register with the West Valley College Disability and Educational Support Program (DESP) to request reasonable accommodations for their college course by following the steps below.

A key difference between how accommodations are implemented in college courses versus high school courses is the degree of initiative required of the high school student enrolled in college courses. High school students follow the steps below to complete an Academic Accommodation Plan in an interactive discussion with a DESP counselor. Students then must request the accommodations that they wish to implement in their courses. This is done every semester in which students are enrolled in West Valley College courses. Instructors are then notified of their students’ approved accommodations. Certain accommodations such as alternative testing require that the student log on to DESP Online Services to schedule quizzes and tests.*

*If college courses are offered at locations other than the main campus, accommodations may be arranged directly with the instructor. DESP counselors will discuss options with students during their intake meeting.

  1. Complete online registration
  2. Upload documentation of disability, eg IEP, 504, physician’s verification
  3. Make appointment with a DESP counselor to complete program registration. 408-741-2010
  4. Request approved accommodations for your course
  5. If you and your instructor agree that you will take your exams in the DESP Test Center, schedule your test.

The DESP office is located in the Student Services building. Their phone number is (408) 741-2010 (voice) or (408) 741-2658 (TTY).
