Student Accessibility Services (SAS)

Due to the virus only Online SAS Counseling is available, now, until June 30, and perhaps beyond.

Student Accessibilities Services (formerly Disability Services Program), we are here to help you with classroom accommodations and to assist you in taking charge of your own success!

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) is here to help you during these difficult times. You can reach us by either calling us at (510) 436-2429, emailing us at SAS.merritt@peralta.edu or your counselor for assistance. We will return calls and emails in 24-48 hours Monday-Fridays. We look forward to hearing from you.

Our mission is to:
• Empower students with disabilities for success.
• Provide services to minimize the limiting effects of a disability.
• Advocate for the needs and rights of students with disabilities.
• Create a “level playing field” in the classroom.

Our goals are to:
• Focus on the true ability of students.
• Determine and provide individualized accommodations.
• Foster equal treatment through all Merritt College Programs.
• Promote awareness of disability rights and the philosophy of equal access.

Please be aware that all continuing Student Accessibility Services students must request accommodations in advance of each semester.

All continuing students must also meet with their counselor at least twice
each semester. We look forward to seeing you.
