High school no longer means an end to your formal education. Most jobs require ongoing training. Technology changes life daily. New forms of recreation catch our interest. Each of these may require a return to the classroom for a workshop or class.

  • Before applying for a college program, make sure you identify your disability and investigate student support services. Inquire about the services available for students with disabilities prior to enrollment. College services are not the same as the support you may have received in high school. It's important to understand the difference, and the importance of being able to self-advocate in college.
  • Make sure you have done as much career exploration as possible -- through the internet, job shadows, career exploration programs, and work experience, before you decide on a career choice.
  • If you need assistive technology, inquire prior to registering.
  • Financial aid will be determined on an individual basis and should be applied prior to the start of a semester. Check your college's financial aid office for important deadlines that may affect your eligibility for financial assistance.
