A Nuts and Bolts Guide to College Success for Students Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
PEPNet 2
Beginning your college education means you'll be exploring a new place, making new friends, learning new things and setting your own priorities. You are going to face a lot of big changes in a short time. That's exciting--and challenging. The more prepared you are for college when you get there, the more ready you'll be to address these new challenges. Colleges and universities offer support services for students with disabilities. For a student who is deaf or hard of hearing, this might include sign language interpreting, speech-to-text transcribing, notetaking, or other services. These services are essential to making the classroom accessible for a student who is deaf or hard of hearing, and quality services are a critical component in student success. Students who do not know how to find the office for disability services or do not use available support services are more likely to drop out of college. This book is all about putting together a plan for college. It's called a "nuts and bolts guide" because it includes very basic information about the planning process. Some students may already know a lot of the information included in this book--that's ok! There's also new information that will help a student plan a smooth transition between high school and college. Individual sections contain resources.
