OSS Eligibility/Application for Services

Los Angeles City College’s Office of Special Services (OSS) authorizes accommodations, academic adjustments, and/or support services to students who have verified disabilities such as:

  • Physical Disability
  • Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH)
  • Blind and Low Vision
  • Learning Disability
  • Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Intellectual Disability (ID)
  • Autism Spectrum
  • Mental Health Disability
  • Other Health Conditions and Disabilities

Students with disabilities who attend Los Angeles City College must make measurable progress toward their educational goals.

New students with disabilities requesting services are required to complete an OSS new student application and a professional certification of disability signed by an appropriate professional. In addition, students must complete the OSS new student orientation.

Continuing students, if requesting services, must update their OSS application each semester in attendance. If you have not been an active student for more than a year, you will need to repeat the OSS new student orientation. Please remember it is required to make an appointment with your Counselor or Specialist in OSS each semester at LACC to sign and review your OSS student education contract.

Please come to the OSS to complete the application or email Ryan Kushner if you would like the OSS application emailed to you.
