Disability Support Services (DSS)

Clark College and the Disability Support Services  (DSS) office assist students with disabilities in pursuing their educational goals. Clark College is committed to assuring that its services, programs, and activities are accessible to individuals with disabilities. The institution takes seriously its responsibility to follow both the spirit and letter of all pertinent federal and state mandates.  Through the DSS Office, qualified persons with disabilities can address their concerns regarding barriers encountered, as well as any need for accommodation to assure equal access. The DSS Office will provide accommodations, as well as serve as a resource to the campus community in striving to make Clark College both an accessible and hospitable place for persons with disabilities.

If you are a current student or a prospective student with a disability and feel you would benefit from accommodation we hope you will contact the Disability Support Services Office.  View the Accommodation Request Procedure located in the right navigation for steps on getting started.
