Students with Disabilities Preparing for Postsecondary Education:

Knowing your Rights and Responsibilities.

United States Department of Education Office of Civil Rights Publication - More and more high school students with disabilities are planning to continue their education in post-secondary schools, including vocational and career schools, two- and four- year colleges, and universities. As a student with a disability, you need to be well informed about your rights and responsibilities as well as the responsibilities post-secondary schools have toward you. Being well informed will help ensure you have a full opportunity to enjoy the benefits of the post-secondary education experience without confusion or delay.
