DSSS provides support to students who meet the following criteria:
- Documented disability (on file with Accessibility Services)
- U.S. citizen or Permanent Legal Resident
Disability Student Support Services (DSSS), a TRIO grant program, provides supplemental academic resources. DSSS does not replace accommodative services provided by Accessibility Services.
The U.S. Department of Education Office of Postsecondary Education has awarded Pikes Peak Community College a $1,099,775 TRIO Disability Student Support Services grant to provide individualized academic and personal support services to eligible students with disabilities. The grant provides 55% of the funds needed for the program. Pikes Peak Community College will provide at least 45% or $178,480 annually in additional resources.
