Although the transition from high school to college is a challenge for any student, college life poses unique challenges for students with disabilities. These students have often received varying levels of support throughout high school, but are now expected to navigate the university on their own. In order to be successful at the post-secondary level, students with disabilities must be able to advocate for their needs, take on responsibility for their learning, and understand the requirements that they must meet in order to be successful in their educational endeavors.
The information and resources provided will be helpful in facilitating a smooth transition to higher education. While Student Disability Services (SDS) cannot promise your student will succeed, we are committed to ensuring that your student has equal access to all USFSP programs and services, and facilitating opportunities for success. SDS is excited to be a partner with students during their journey at the USFSP.
