Info about college for students with disabilities.
The transition to adulthood creates changes in legal status and affects the rights and responsibilities of disabled students. The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights offers a brochure to answer questions commonly asked by students with disabilities. The recently updated brochure, written in a question-answer format, discusses topics such as when and how to disclose a disability, how to ask for accommodations, and which accommodations universities and colleges must provide.
