High School vs. College Accommodations

Take note of the differences between accommodations in high school and college, to be prepared!

Accommodations in High School

Accommodations in College

Depending on how you are being served, accommodations are being implemented to help you achieve program success.

Accommodations are being implemented to provide access to programs and services. Sometimes this is called, "leveling the playing field" to provide you equal access.

The school (including instructors, counselors, and psychologists) is responsible for your progress.

You are responsible for your progress.

The school will provide you with an assessment for a suspected learning disability.

You are responsible to seek outside professionals to assess you as to whether or not you have a learning disability or any other disability. You are also responsible for the cost of such assessment.

Sometimes, depending on your disability, an accommodation may involve changing or modifying the curriculum to meet your learning needs.

The curriculum is not changed, modified or waived to meet your learning needs. You are expected to maintain the academic standards of all students.

If you had an IEP, it prescribed the services that you receive.

The materials from your diagnosing professionals that you present to verify your disability document your disability and describe the services that you may be eligible to receive. Note, not all suggested services or accommodations may be authorized if it is determined that such aids would compromise the essential course objectives.

Teachers monitored your progress and recommended adjustments as needed.

You will need to monitor your own progress and whether the accommodations are helping. It is up to you to request additional assistance if problems occur.

Depending on your disability, you may not be held to the same code of conduct as other students.

You are expected to maintain and uphold the same code of conduct as is expected of all other students.

If you are identified as having a disability that needs accommodation, the school is responsible to initiate the process for the accommodation implementation.

If you have a disability that needs accommodation, you are responsible to initiate the process of obtaining the accommodations. Depending on the school, this could be done once, or on a quarterly or semester basis.
