How do accommodations in postsecondary schools differ from those in high school?

Accommodations differ widely between postsecondary schools and high school.

  • First, it’s up to the student to begin the accommodation process by contacting the person/office on campus in charge of accommodations; unlike high school where teachers and parents advocate for services, the student advocates for themselves.
  • In high school, accommodations are set up through the IEP process. In college, the student must start the accommodation process by contacting the person/office on campus in charge of accommodations.
