Please contact your respective GSIs directly if you would like to utilize this resource.
The Disabled Students’ Program (DSP) at UC Berkeley provides a wide range of services, including academic accommodations and campus access services, to help make the academic experience accessible for all students. Some ways students have utilized their accommodations in the past have been in regards to the classroom environment and on exams.
If you would like to seek accommodations, it’s advisable to apply with DSP early so that we can ensure that you receive the most thorough support. Please note, appointments with DSP can often take 2-3 weeks to schedule. If you need immediate assistance with a DSP request, please reach out to the FTMBA Director of Academics.
To provide balance to the academic life we encourage students to review and utilize various health and wellbeing resources available to UC Berkeley students.
If you have concerns about a student, you have many options for helping a student.
