How is College Different from High School?

In college, disability related decisions and related activities fall solely on the student not on parents or others. 

The student is responsible for making all decisions regarding programs of study.

The student is responsible for disclosing a disability. Once a disability is disclosed the appropriate academic assistance can be addressed.

All students are to follow the syllabus given to them by their instructor. No accommodations will be made which change the content of a course.

All students are expected to follow classroom rules and procedures as well as the Code of Conduct for the school. 

Students with disabilities are encouraged to attempt a class without additional support. Many times students choose programs that work with their strengths and require no additional support.

If a student feels the need for support, it must be requested.
