New Date ~ January 19th! "Students with Disabilities Transition Night" at the College of Lake County

On Wednesday, 1/9/19, from 6pm – 8:30pm, the College of Lake County (Grayslake Campus) will host a transition night for students with disabilities!  Come and learn important information about applying for accommodations, which of those accommodations transfer, changes in the law, services available, and how to go about making a successful transition!  Come and enjoy the presentations, visit with us for our Open House, and learn about accommodations in higher education!

“Transitioning to College”
Thomas Crowe, Director, Office for Students with Disabilities
6pm – 6:45pm, Room A013

In this session, we’ll discuss how accommodations, and the law, differ from high school to college, what kinds of accommodations are available, what students need to do in order to gain accommodations in post-secondary education, and pitfalls to avoid.  If you intend on applying for accommodations as a disabled student at any university, it is information you will not want to miss. Parents welcome!


“What it means to be a college student”
6:45pm – 7:30pm, Collective faculty

Going to college is much more than attending classes in a different building, adjusting to a schedule or dealing with costly textbooks! In this session, faculty will speak about expectations of college students, and what a typical college class looks like.  Survival strategies in college will be discussed, along with the essentials of what students need to know about getting and using their accommodations, talking with instructors, and generally being successful in higher education!


Office for Students with Disabilities, Room B171 
6pm – 8:30pm
