Attention Parents: There are some key differences between accommodations offered in high school and college. Please review the differences between high school and college accommodations.
As parents, you have helped your young adult get to this educational milestone! Disability Support Services recognizes the supportive role families play for students. We strive to help students ease the transition from high school to college. It is your student’s responsibility to develop the self-knowledge and self-advocacy skills that are essential to the success of any individual with a disability.
Throughout your student’s high school years, you may have worked closely with a team of administrators, counselors and teachers to ensure that your student received appropriate accommodations. In college, the responsibility of handling this process becomes the student’s; an important life skill called self-advocacy. The expectations are that they will assume responsibilities for meeting their class requirements.
