    A College Transition Program for Students with Disabilities

    Enrollment in postsecondary education is steadily increasing for students with disabilities. Yet many students are not adequately prepared to deal with the academic and social demands of this environment. Say YES to College is designed to ease the transition from high school to college. Students with disabilities who are planning to secure a two- or four- year college degree are invited to apply.

    Parents of students who participate in Say YES to College are encouraged to attend. Parent workshops provide suggestions to help families prepare their children for college life and explore the changing roles of parents as children transition to college.

    Applicants must be current high school sophomores, juniors, or seniors pursuing an Advanced Studies, Standard, or Modified Standard Diploma, or students of high school age seeking a GED. Participation is limited to 50 students. Application deadline is May 1, 2009.
