How to Sign Forms with Adobe Acrobat Reader

  1. Send forms to: dsp@solano.edu  Feel free to email or call (707) 864-7136 with any questions. Please make sure to include your full name, student ID# and a call back phone number when you email or call us.
  2. Once all forms are received, a DSP staff member will contact you to schedule a
    30-minute Zoom JumpStart Orientation. JumpStart is a small group orientation where students can ask questions to better understand how the DSP program works, and to help you learn how to fully utilize the services to your benefit. These orientations are scheduled only once per week.
  3. Next you will have an appointment to meet with a DSP Counselor to create your accommodations and review a plan for your class schedule. If you know which classes you want to sign up for, you are welcome to do so on your registration date, but you must still meet with a DSP Counselor to discuss the accommodations that are available.

Continuing Students

If you are a continuing student:

You must meet with a DSP Counselor at least once a semester to continue receiving your services. We prefer that you also meet with a DSP Counselor about one month into the semester to check your progress. If you want to request an additional service, or have additional needs schedule an appointment with a DSP Counselor.

Returning Students

If you are a student who has been away from Solano College for a year or more:

  1. You must reapply to the college, Solano College Application
  2. Schedule an appointment with a DSP specialist or counselor who will review your file.
