High School Transition

High School Transition Information Sheet

Make a smooth transition from high school to college by enrolling with Disabled Students Programs and Services. We offer students a broad range of special services designed to support academic success. Through DSPS, high school students with accommodation needs can complete placement testing, receive assistance with class scheduling and arrange for support services.

DSPS transition activities are designed to prepare high school students for early registration. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this special opportunity to get your college career off to a great start!
