College Fair for Students with Disabilities
Please join us for the
1st Annual New Jersey College Fair for students with disabilities!
This event, run by The Family Resource Network in partnership with
the NJ Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired and the NJ
Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, is an exciting opportunity
for high school students and their families to learn about disability-specific
college resources and services. We understand that it is frustrating
to attend a traditional college fair and walk away with disability
related questions and concerns that have not been addressed. College
recruiters and Disability Service Office personnel, from a wide
range of institutions, will be available to answer any questions
students and their families have related to a specific college,
including accessibility, accommodations, transportation, academics,
and social life. There will also be breakout sessions where students
and their families can learn about financial aid, assistive technology,
support services for college students, and a student/disability
services panel. Please find the event details below.
