  • Differences from High School

    How will college be different from high school?

    Typically, in the high school setting, the school is responsible for identifying a student’s disability and maintaining his or her educational plan. Once the transition is made to college, the student becomes responsible for his or her educational goals and disability management. Students should self-identify their disability to receive services and accommodations from CTX. During their studies at CTX, students should self-advocate for their needs and work with the Office of Accessibility Services and their professors to reach their educational goals. For further reading on the differences between high school and college, please see the following resources:
