College Guidance Q & A
Larry receives numerous questions regarding college admissions from applicants and their families. Each week he will pick one question and share his response. This week's question pertains to the impact of having an IEP (Individualized Education Program) on college admissions.
Q: Does having an IEP affect college acceptance?
A: No, an IEP does not, by itself, affect college acceptance. The existence of an IEP is not disclosed in any official documentation shared with colleges. Only the student can choose to disclose. If the student’s Learning Disabilities are such that they are applying to the special programs offered at some colleges that require an application in addition to the college application, of course that process requires the student to disclose.
