DSPS Offers Outstanding Programs and Services!

We welcome all students with disabilities to the beautiful Cuesta College campus, and hope that you will find the campus both accessible and friendly. If you need any special accommodations, please make an appointment at the San Luis Obispo or North County Campus DSPS Office, and we will make every effort to assist you.

Currently we advise and support over 650 students with disabilities attending Cuesta College. We offer classes specifically designed for students with disabilities in the areas of reading, writing, arithmetic and computer use. We also have an Assistive Technology Center at the San Luis Obispo campus that provides services and accommodations for students and consultation for instructors on campus.
