College Readiness Workbook
When students with disabilities graduate from high school, the same special education laws do not apply in postsecondary education programs. Special education and the provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) end, but the rights and protections of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act continue. Services and accommodations are available in postsecondary programs. There are differences in the types of services provided, the process for obtaining support, and the responsibilities of both the student and the postsecondary institution. The pictures with links below provide information, printable tools, and resources for students considering postsecondary education programs.
