                                DSSS (DISABLED STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES)
The Disabled Student Support Services Program (DSSS) is designed to provide a comprehensive program of required and allowable academic support and personal development services for a limited number disabled low-income college students. The
DSSS participants are identified and selected through an open, informative and non- discriminatory process. This process begins with the identification of Program participants through the admissions and financial aid offices, student organizations, student services offices, and current and former Disabled Student Program & Services (DSPS) participants. Grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education, DSSS services are provided at no cost to program participants.
For more information, please call the DSPS office 790.921.5489.
EOPS/CARE
(EXTENDED OPPORTUNITY PROGRAMS & SERVICES/ COOPERATIVE AGENCIES RESOURCES FOR EDUCATION)
Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOP&S) at Palo Verde College encourages students who are affected by language, social, and economic handicaps by providing them with the essential tools to succeed in college. EOPS assists students with making a successful completion at a two-year program and transferring to a four-year university. The program goal is to motivate those whom the program serves by enabling them to be more effective and decisive with their career choices.
Under the EOPS umbrella, students who qualify are able to benefit from one added resource that is offered through our CARE Program. The program fosters students with CARE grants for childcare costs, transportation, book vouchers, and food grants.
