For the College Bound Student
College planning can be overwhelming for all parents, students, and high school teachers and counselors. It is especially challenging for students with dyslexia as there are so many things to consider. IDA’s Fact Sheet, Transition to College, is a highly useful roadmap for navigating the whole process, from making sure students have current documentation of needs, to accommodations for taking college entrance tests, and later accommodations in college classes. To add to this Fact Sheet, SWIDA has asked several parents to each write about their child’s experiences at colleges here in the Southwest.
IDA Southwest offers two scholarships to students who have completed at least one semester of college in good standing.
- The IDA Southwest College and Career Tech Application is for students who have already attended at least one semester of post-secondary education in good standing. One scholarship will be awarded to a student attending a 2-year or 4-year traditional college, and another to a student attending a career-technology institute.
- Both scholarships have strict deadlines (April 1) so don’t delay starting the application process.
