Preparing High School Students for College
One-hour long sessions available from January 14 – 27 (see below for times)
Preparing for college is process. It includes learning how to be an independent learner, advocate for one self and how to improve your academic skills continuously. Students with disabilities going to college should understand that they will be expected to perform – and will be assessed – in the same manner as their peers. There are other considerations, among them are:
What sorts of reasonable accommodations are available?
How do I request reasonable accommodations?
What sort of documentation do I need to receive accommodations?
Why doesn’t my IEP or 504 plan follow me to college?
What steps can I take now to be college ready?
What is the level of parents’ involvement in college?
Westfield State University’s Banacos Academic Center is hosting hour-long Zoom sessions to address these very questions for high school students and their parents or guardians. Disability/Accessibility Services staff from the other Massachusetts Universities and a Westfield State Admissions representative will be present. Please use this form to sign up for a session. Sessions are capped at 50 sign ups.
