revised directory of postsecondary options in Georgia has been compiled in an
effort to help students with disabilities who are preparing for graduation from
high school and are seeking further training or education. This directory
presents information in the following areas:
and Four-Year Colleges and Universities in Georgia
College Programs Outside Georgia
addition, there is an article about “Tips for Students to Find Success in
Higher Education” and another dealing with Section 504
of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Both offer practical suggestions for the
high school graduate with disabilities.
