Guilderland families invited to special "college night" for students with an IEP or 504 services

Oct. 30, 2012—A special event at Niskayuna High School on Thursday, Nov. 15, will focus on the transition to college for students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or who receive 504 services.

This event is specifically for students who have an IEP or receive 504 services and are planning on attending college in the future. While all are welcome to attend, the evening will focus on the transition from high school to college, and would be of most immediate interest to sophomores, juniors and seniors.

The panel presentation will feature representatives from area colleges highlighting topics of interest to college-bound students with disabilities. They will answer questions and concerns about attending college by presenting topics such as: how college differs from high school and the levels of support services and accommodations that are available on campuses. Panelists will also discuss the type of documentation that is necessary to access services and accommodations in college, and when to submit that documentation.

A College Fair will follow the panel presentation. Disability Resource Center Representatives and/or Admissions Counselors from local colleges will have tables set up to talk directly with students and parents and answer their questions. There will be plenty of handouts for families to take home and help them with the college process.

The colleges that are planning to attend this event are: Saint Rose, SAGE, Hudson Valley Community College, Bryant & Stratton, Schenectady County Community College, Fulton-Montgomery Community College, and SUNY Cobleskill.

If you plan to attend this event, please RSVP to or at (518) 382-2511, ext. 21656 with number of people attending by November 9, 2012.
