CSM Student Jamie Cusick meets with an disability services coordinator


Disability Support Services (DSS) is dedicated to helping students with disabilities reach their personal, academic, and career goals. We strive to help remove barriers that limit opportunities, and provide equal access to everything that the College of Southern Maryland has to offer.

Here at DSS, we spend a lot of time working one-on-one with students. We provide support in all aspects of college life. We are available to help all otherwise qualified students level the playing field inside and outside of the classroom, with a variety of services including assistive technology, classroom aids like interpreters and notetakers, and help with strategies for dealing with everyday issues in college.

We know from years of experience that having a disability does not mean you cannot follow your dreams. Through hard work and a little help from us, we are sure that you can have the same opportunity to succeed in college and beyond. We are excited to help you on your journey at the College of Southern Maryland!

  • Maintain and protect the confidentiality of student records as required by law
  • Assist the entire College community to understand the ADA and the enhancement to diversity that students with disabilities provide
  • Provide training for and use of assistive technology
  • Act as a liaison to external agencies, such as Division of Rehabilitative Services (DORS) and local schools
