Many students receiving disability services at MSU also received accommodations during elementary through high school. If this was your case, then you are familiar with the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) that guided your earlier education. You may have become used to a fair amount of oversight and intervention on your behalf by a team of teachers and counselors. You likely received periodic testing, mandatory progress reviews, and may have been provided with personal classroom aides.Services at the post-secondary level work somewhat differently. Legal protections exist so that discrimination against admitting "otherwise qualified" students with disabilities does not occur. However, the University's admission criteria is the same for a person with a disability as it is for other students. Likewise, accommodations exist to remove barriers to learning and testing, but grading standards are the same for all students and accommodations must not fundamentally alter essential course or program content.
