If you have not seen a DSPS counselor yet this semester, please email the DSPS office to make sure your DSPS file is active.
Remember that you must meet with a DSPS Counselor once per semester in order to keep your DSPS file active. If you do not meet with a DSPS Counselor for two consecutive semesters, then you risk losing your priority registration and other DSPS services. Our DSPS Counselors are academic counselors too, so they can meet all of your needs.
You also must maintain a 2.0 GPA, successfully complete 50% of your classes and have a Comprehensive Student Education Plan (SEP) on file to maintain your priority registration.
Dozens of DSPS students lost their registration priority only because they missed very important emails from DSPS and Counseling. It is strongly recommended that all students forward their COD email to their personal email in order to stay updated on important college announcements and information.
Please see instructions on How to Forward your College of the Desert Email to your Personal Email (downloads word document).
