College for Students Who Learn Differently

Students who face learning challenges increase their chances of success in college if they make available support services to support learning a factor in their college decision process. 

Colleges differ on the amount and type of services provided. Reading college websites, parents and students notice that some focus on supporting students with the goal of student success in college while others devote more web space to
what they must do by law. 

There are two types of colleges to consider. The first type is colleges that provide excellent support services. Examples of colleges with noteworthy support services for student learning differences are in the chart below. This chart contains only a few samples of this type of college.


   COLLEGE
   LOCATION
   Curry
   Milton, MA
   Dean College
   Franklin, MA
   Ferrum College
   Ferrum, VA
   Gardner-Webb
   Boiling Springs, NC
   Guilford College
   Guilford, NC
   High Point University
   High Point, NC
   Stetson University
   DeLand, FL
   Southern Illinois University
   Carbondale, IL
   University of Arizona
   Tucson, AZ

The other type of college to consider is the colleges that are devoted to serving students with learning differences. The benefits of such colleges include a faculty and staff that are skilled in helping students who learn differently succeed anyway. Two examples of this type of college are Beacon College in Leesburg, FL and Landmark College in Putney, VT.The disadvantages include a narrower band of available majors and possibly being in an environment with less diversity in the student population.
