The department of Disabled Student Services (DSS) at CSULB utilized a questionnaire to screen triple pre-baccalaureate students and identify if there is a potential disabling condition. The questionnaire collected information regarding history of education, present psychological health, possible medications used, and any previous or current affiliations with programs or services for students with disabilities. It was hypothesized that of the students identified to be at high risk of a disability, those that utilize resources are more likely to graduate in 5 years, than those that do not employ resources. Results show that the study was not significant however did show to have a positive odds ratio. Students that were outreached were 2.1 times more likely to utilize disability services than students that were not outreached. Students that utilized disability services were 2.3 times more likely to graduate than students that did not utilize disability services.?
