Disability Services

The mission of The Office of Disability and Academic Services is to promote student success at all achievement levels. To improve academic performance, we offer support to students through study and learning skills development. Through a variety of learning strategies utilized in small group and individual sessions, students will learn valuable skills such as time management, note and test taking strategies, and personal learning styles. In addition, The Office of Disability and Academic Services provides reasonable academic accommodations for students with disabilities.

The Office of Disability and Academic Services provides reasonable accommodations for students who need assistance with learning, and for students with disabilities.

Reasonable accommodations are established through an interactive process between you, your professor(s) and Disability and Academic Services. If you have a temporary or permanent disability that requires accommodations (this can include but not limited to; attention-related, learning, mental health, vision, hearing, physical or other health impairments), please contact The Office of Disability and Academic Services at 714-619-6550 or disabilityservices@vanguard.edu
