Four things to check carefully before applying to a college or university:
- Fees: Fees can add hundreds or thousands of dollars to the tuition. Some colleges charge a parking fee, a library fee, an application fee, an audit fee, a lab fee, technology fee, ATI fee, graduation fee, placement testing, and even more. These fees can add thousands of dollars to the tuition. Find a college or university that does not charge additional fees.1
- Textbooks: Many colleges and universities require you to purchase textbooks and supplies. This can add thousands of dollars to the tuition. Find a college or university that includes books in the tuition.1
- Laptop: A laptop with the right software is essential for today’s college work. A laptop with the right software can cost over a thousand dollars. Find a college or university that provides a laptop you can use in school and keep when you graduate.1
- Grants, Loans, and Scholarships: Student financial aid can be complex and you need help to be sure that you will get all the financial aid, grants, and loans for which you qualify. Find a college or university that provides help with all of the forms and paperwork.
All tuition numbers are not equal; check carefully.

Eligibility for Services
In order to receive accommodations, students must meet the following criteria:
- Have a documented disability (documentation must be supplied) that presents a significant barrier to the educational process, and
- Request services from Disability Services through the Dean or Director of Student Services.
Provisional eligibility, which allows students to receive limited services and accommodations, may be granted in the following situations:
- The student provides documentation that is outdated or incomplete and is in the process of obtaining updated documentation, or
- The student does not have ready access to required documentation, but provides some other form of legitimate evidence of disability and the resulting limitations and agrees to provide the required documentation in a timely fashion.
Students are required to provide the institution with medical or psychological documentation in order to receive accommodations. All medical information received by the Institution remains confidential and is released to other Institution personnel only with the student’s written permission. Specific documentation requirements may vary slightly depending on the disability. Generally, students should use the following guidelines in determining what constitutes adequate documentation:
- Statement of disability, including diagnosis, instruments/ tests used to reach that diagnosis, and current medications (if any) used to treat the condition and their potential side effects, signed by a qualified medical/psychological professional;
- Statement of the current impact of the disability on academic performance;
- Recommendations for appropriate academic accommodations.
If the student’s documentation is not current (within the last three to five years), or if the student has a learning disability and the most recent testing was prior to age 16, the student will be asked to seek more current testing and/or diagnostic information. This is to ensure that any accommodations made by the Institution are best suited to the student’s current needs and/or level of functioning.
Students with disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations at the Institution. Institution management will determine what reasonable accommodations to provide based appropriate documentation that outlines the needs of the student and the demands of the course.
