Disability Services and Programs

Disability Services and Programs (DSP) provides support and accommodations for students with disabilities. We serve undergraduate, graduate and professional students, as well as on-ground and on-line students in all programs of study. DSP engages in an interactive review process to determine appropriate accommodations for each student, factoring in the student’s request, the nature of the student’s disability, functional limitations of the disability, the supporting documentation, and the fundamental requirements of courses, programs of study, and the University. DSP is part of the Division of Student Affairs, and while we are a separate department from other support, advocacy and counseling departments, we work closely with these and other resources on campus to best support student needs.
Please contact DSP by visiting in GFS 120, calling (213) 740-0776, emailing ability@usc.edu or reviewing our Website for more information (dsp.usc.edu).
