Post secondary opportunities for students with Down syndrome exist at many colleges and universities across the nation.  Check out the resources below for more information!

Think College is designed to share what is currently going on, provide resources and strategies, let you know about training events, and give you ways to talk to others. The information is for transition aged students as well as adults attending or planning for college. It provides resources and tools for students, families, and professionals.

Going to College contains information about living college life with a disability. It’s designed for high school students and provides video clips, activities and additional resources that can help you get a head start in planning for college.

Affordable Colleges Online, an organization dedicated to providing free higher education tools and information for current and future college students and their families, has recently published a new resource for students with disabilities, titled “Making College Affordable: A Guide for Students with Disabilities.”  Multiple experts in the field with experience in academia, financial aid, and law contributed to the content in this resource guide, including:

  • Advice and resources for loans and scholarships available specifically for students with disabilities
  • A comprehensive list of the best schools for disabled students, evaluated by each institution’s disability services
  • Distance learning tips for students with disabilities
  • Job resources for students with disabilities
  • Additional helpful resources


Anyone can access our free College Guide for Students with Disabilities
