(Please see ** note below for appointment scheduling during the first two weeks of each semester!)

• Office hours are Mon, Wed, & Thurs 7:30am-4:00pm. Tues, 9:00am-4:00pm. Office hours on Fri. are 8:00am-11:30am (please note, no appointments are available on Friday, but you can call or stop by to drop off paperwork or ask questions.

Same Day Appointments: First Appointments begin at 8:00am and last appointment time is 2:30pm. If an appointment is available, you can schedule that appointment in person beginning as soon as the office opens at 7:30 and return at your appointed time. If no appointments are available, you must return on another day to schedule your appointment. No appointments are available at the Chico Center or Glenn Center until the third week of the semester. NO ADVANCED APPOINTMENTS WILL BE SCHEDULED DURING THE FIRST TWO WEEKS.

** During the first two weeks of each semester, only same day appointments are available. NO ADVANCED appointments will be scheduled during the first two weeks of each semester. These appointments are available on a first come, first served basis. We suggest you come into our office as early as possible on the day you want the appointment.

 • Please arrive at 10 -15 mins before your scheduled appointment time. This will allow you time to complete any required paperwork, or make sure your paperwork is completed before you are scheduled to meet with a Disabilities Specialist. If you arrive late, your appointment may need to be rescheduled.

• Don't miss your scheduled appointment. If you have scheduled an advanced appointment after the first two weeks of the semester, and you miss your appointment without providing at least 24 hours notice, you will no longer be able to make advanced appointments in our office. This is considered a NO SHOW, and due to the number of students needing to get in to see a Disabilities Specialist, we must ensure students can access our services. 

• Have your Class Schedule, and Grade Report with you. These documents along with any other required paperwork, should be available when you arrive to help the Specialists complete your appointment efficiently and speed you on your way. If you do not have these documents when you arrive for your appointment, you will be asked to go and get them.

Have a great semester!
 Sincerely,
 DSPS Staff
