The rights of disabled students in higher education.

This past Spring, the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights, issued two letters and a guide relating to students with disabilities and higher education. 

The first, addressed to institutions, summarized the rights and obligations of disabled students in higher education.  The second, addressed to parents, similarly explains rights and obligations and addresses how those rights and obligations differ in higher education than in public K-12 schools. 

The letters themselves do not offer any new insights or agency positions. But they serve as a useful reminder, particularly for parents, of how different circumstances are in higher education than in K-12.

The guide, Transition of Student with Disabilities to Postsecondary Education: A Guide for high School Educators, a question and answer format, is available here.
