Expectations: How College Differs   


Expectations: How College Differs —
Making the Transition from High School a Success

Both college and the service available to you differ in important ways from what you may be accustomed to in High School. How you obtain services, apply for them, and the responsibility placed on you  may well be different than what you are familiar with.  Please read all the sections below as well as the excellent booklet provided by the U.S. Department of Education available in  English or Spanish from our office: "Students with Disabilities Preparing for Post-secondary Education: Know Your Rights and Responsibilities."  If you are entering college for the first time, it is important to understand what to expect from the Services for Students with Disabilities office, other student services offices, as well as faculty, staff, and yourself. The Forms on this site are provided for the convenience of your physician, psychologist, or other certifying professional.
