Paying for college can be harder than getting into college. Financial assistance is available.

Students with disabilities should consider all types of funding sources for post-secondary education. Many sources and scholarships are not disability specific.

If you have already selected a college, the financial aid office at the school you plan to attend is a good place to begin your search. The financial aid administrator can tell you about student aid available from your state, the school itself, and other sources.

Don't ignore a college just because of it's "sticker price." Find out how and where to look.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn how to finance post-secondary school. Find information to help you plan ahead and make good financial decisions.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

Tips & Strategies for Paying for College

Find a comprehensive resource page about funding strategies for college that lists excellent guides for financial aid for students with disabilities.

Get information about loans, scholarships, and financial aid and learn how to apply.


"I Can't Afford College" and other Financial Aid Myths

One obstacle in advocating for a child with a disability is finding the time to do research. We spend hours collecting information so you can spend your time learning, not searching.

On the Financial Aid page at Wrightslaw, you'll find a free Federal Financial Aid Resource Guide: An Overview for Students with Disabilities.


Protecting Students with Disabilities in Post-Secondary Education

Good advice about:

  • civil rights
  • two federal laws that provide protection at the post-secondary level
  • how to find out about other state and/or local laws


Self Advocacy: Success Stories

Learning to become an effective self-advocate is all about educating the people around you. Like anything else, the more you know, the better you understand, and the easier it is to explain.

Know yourself, know your needs, and know how to get what you need.
