Disability – Step 1 – Plan for College Early

Step 1 – Plan for College Early 

It is essential to begin planning for college as early as possible. There is much to do and learn before the first day of college classes begin.

Each college and university will have unique policies regarding admission and placement. For instance, if you are graduating from high school with a Mississippi Occupational Diploma (MOD), it will be necessary for you to contact the admission’s office of your prospective schools in order to determine if this type of diploma is accepted for purposes of admission.

In addition, each college has its own policies and procedures regarding assistance provided to students with disabilities. It’s also important to understand that colleges and universities are not required to provide accommodations retroactively, or after the fact, so advanced planning is necessary to ensure that your needs are met to the highest extent possible.
