(2015) Useful to Parent Centers, professionals, and families working with youth who have disabilities interested in attending college

Making My Way through College is aimed at helping students with disabilities navigate postsecondary education. The guide provides information and resources on preparing for and succeeding in college and transitioning from college into the world of work that will be relevant to any student pursuing a degree or other type of credential (e.g., certification, license) at a two-year or four-year community college, college, or university. The content includes:

  • information on getting oriented to college life and one’s school;
  • exploring career interests and making an individualized plan aligned to personal goals; and
  • taking advantage of various opportunities and support to ensure college and career success.

Families and professionals who work with students entering or in postsecondary education are encouraged to share the guide with students and youth.
