SAS Contact Information – Programs, Staff & Locations

(Formerly known as DSPS)

Due to campus closures resulting from COVID-19 all SAS support services have moved online temporarily.

DSPS Counseling appointments can be scheduled using our SAS Online Appointment System. Students new to College of Alameda’s DSPS should apply for SAS services prior to scheduling an appointment with a counselor.
