Post Secondary Student Services
As more students with disabilities continue their education after high school it’s important that you know your rights and responsibilities as a Post-Secondary student. The responsibilities of Post-Secondary schools for students with disabilities are very different than K-12 public school districts.
Unlike a K-12 public school district that has the responsibility of identifying students with disabilities, Post-Secondary schools are not required to identify you as having a disability or to assess your needs.
What do I need to know as a student with a disability on a college campus?
If you want the Post-Secondary school to provide an academic adjustment or accommodations, you should identify yourself to the college as having a disability.
- Can I be denied admission because I have a disability?
- What should I do if I need accommodations or academic adjustments?
- What type of documentation do I need to prove that I have a disability?
- What should I do if I feel the college is discriminating against me?
- Can I receive academic adjustments or accommodations for graduate, medical, law, or pharmacy school?
