Sorrells, Susan J.
Planning for postsecondary education and the choice of the right college program are discussed to assist disabled high school students and disabled persons who are thinking about returning to school. Considerations before making a college choice are identified, including whether the student: has a high school diploma or equivalent, meets college entrance requirements, takes admission tests, has accommodations for admission to vocational technical schools or technical institutes, and obtains advice from the high school guidance counselor. The following programs are described: four-year colleges and universities, junior and community colleges, vocational technical schools, technical institutes, trade schools, home study, adult basic education, and continuing education. Information on these programs includes: funding, courses of study or special interests that should be considered in selecting a school, admission requirements, special services for handicapped students, and licensing and accreditation of vocational/technical schools and home study programs. The differences among vocational/technical schools, technical institutions, and trade schools are identified. (SW)
