As a student with a disability, students entering college need to be well informed about changes in their rights and responsibilities as well as the rights and responsibilities afforded by the University. A student who is well informed will help to ensure a full opportunity to enjoy the benefits of the postsecondary education experience without confusion or delay. Prospective students with disabilities are encouraged to contact or visit the Office for Disability Services in their junior or senior years in high school in order to find out more about disability services at the college level.

The responsibilities of postsecondary schools are significantly different from those of school districts at the secondary level. The responsibilities of students with disabilities are significantly different as well. As a student with a disability enters the college setting, it is in their best interest to know their rights and responsibilities and the rights and responsibilities of the postsecondary schools under Section 504 and Title II. Doing so will improve the opportunity to succeed in a postsecondary education.
