Individuals with Disabilities Education Act
The first thing available to help you is the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
When you register for college, you need to inform those in authority of your disability. To receive accommodations in college you will need proof or documentation, for instance, if you went to a public school and used IDEA, to demonstrate that you are eligible for accommodations in college.
Before starting college, you need to show the most recent evaluation report under IDEA with a diagnosis, your Individual Education Program, or your own Section 504 plan.
Section 504 is a part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that requires access to handicapped individuals from any organization that receives Federal aid. If you have received accommodations because of IDEA, and your disability is a learning disability, you probably have a special education folder and a regular education folder. Public schools will usually provide material from the folders if you request it in writing. You should request material from both folders.
Ideally, you will have been keeping records at home. The law is there to protect you, but for college students, it does require you to be the one to inform the school of your disability. If you often achieved goals in your Individual Education Plan, you might want to demonstrate this to officials at the college.
In college, make sure you keep records of your grades, course completions, and program of studies in a three ring binder. These records will not only help you while in college but will help you prepare a resume after graduation.
