Accessibility is a core value across Waubonsee, and it’s the focus of the college’s Access Center for Disability Resources. Every day we work with students who have a variety of disabilities—providing academic support services, individualized accommodations and self-advocacy guidance.

Our dedication doesn’t end there. Waubonsee has a campus chapter of Delta Sigma Omicron, which is open to all students interested in advocating on behalf of or working with individuals with disabilities. The college also offers courses in Disability Studies, designed to offer insight into disabilities that generates the sensitivity and energy to create change. And since life happens off campus too, you can refer to our Community Resource Guide for additional information and support.

Transition from High School to College

We know moving up to college comes with changes, and students become their own advocates and assume responsibility for their own accommodations and educational goals. Our office offers a variety of programs and events to help high school students and their parents with this important transition.

First Note First Look First Move
Parents, high school students and district high school personnel learn about the transition in services between high school and college. District high school juniors and seniors have the opportunity to visit Waubonsee’s campus locations. Students who are working with the Access Center receive a supplemental orientation designed specifically for them.
