Most Popular Resources

Paying for College
How to pay for college is a question that many families have. Resources available to students with intellectual disabilities include traditional resources like financial aid (grants, work study) and scholarships, as well as some disability specific resources. For more information, visit our Financial Resources webpage.
Community Resources
College students with intellectual disabilities (ID) can use many of the same resources as anyone else with ID. This may include Benefits Counseling, Medicaid Waivers, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and more. Recorded webinars on each of these topics, and how they relate to college, can be found on our website. View past recorded webinars.
