Requesting Services

De Anza College offers reasonable test accommodations to our registered Disability Support Services and Programs (DSPS) students with documented disabilities. New students must first register with De Anza Disability Support Services (DSS) and also meet with a DSS counselor to determine eligibility. Eligibility for accommodations is based upon the nature of the disability and the course curriculum. Please visit the DSS resource page for more information.

Due to COVID-19 and the college's direction towards a virtual campus we will not offer any face to face testing. We have asked your instructors to please be flexible and build extra time accommodations into their virtual/online quizzes, exams and finals.

Please refer to your accommodation letter to verify your accommodations. If there are any accommodations you need help accessing virtually, please contact for support. It is possible that your instructor is not yet aware of this new policy, if so, please let them know to contact us with any questions they may have.

If you are a student or Faculty who needs support or has questions regarding accommodations through Canvas, Zoom, etc., please email
