Disabled Student Services

Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSP&S) at Long Beach City College provide many support services that enable students with disability-related limitations to participate in the college’s programs and activities. DSP&S offers a wide range of services that compensate for a students limitations, such as note-taking assistance, interpretive services, test taking assistance, and alternative media formats at no cost to students.

While we offer special assistance to students with disabilities, we do not make academic requirements easier or change the essential nature of a course or program that is offered.

LBCC does not discriminate in its admissions educational programs, activities or employment policies on the basis of sex, age, race, religious creed, ancestry, color, national origin, disability, medical condition, marital status, sexual orientation or status as a Vietnam era veteran.
