While all institutions are required by the Americans with Disabilities Act to offer accommodations, some institutions go beyond the basic ADA requirements and offer more comprehensive services. The colleges and universities listed below have programs that go beyond the basics. Programs might include options such as a one-on-one learning specialist, individual tutoring, time management assistance, help with executive function issues, group tutoring, workshops, and the list goes on. Most programs require proof of disability and many charge extra fees on top of regular tuition.
These programs typically offer assistance to students who have already been accepted into the college and do not offer a separate application option – unless otherwise noted. Students must qualify for the institution before they will be accepted into the disabilities program.
Several programs listed are part of the Federal Trio Student Support Services Program which provides funding for a variety of programs including programs for students with disabilities, students who are lower income, and first generation students. TRIO programs are all free.
Several colleges offer more comprehensive programs which include more residential assistance and stronger academic help. Visit our page for more comprehensive programs here.
