Typically, the deaf or hard-of-hearing students meet with the campus DSPS counselor to determine the appropriate communication access accommodations and the service requests are then handled by the Interpreting Services Office.

To access WorkAbility III's services in the San Diego area, an individual must be a client of the Department of Rehabilitation and a student attending classes within the SDCCD.

EOPS provides services "above and beyond" those offered by the college, to enhance the educational success of program participants, beginning with an outreach program that stresses that college is for everyone with a dream, and that success can be a reality for those with a plan.

Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) is a state funded program designed to provide counseling, retention and support services to increase college enrollment for those individuals who have previously not considered college as an option. EOPS strives to alleviate the educational barriers that preclude many students from college attendance.

EOPS also provides services to single parents currently on public assistance through the CARE Program, as well as services to Foster Youth. Please click on the CARE or Foster Youth links on the college EOPS websites for more information.

These services are specifically designed for students who are economically and educationally disadvantaged. To participate in EOPS you must meet certain eligibility requirements and fulfill certain obligations.
