The Center for Access & Success (CAS) will be presenting a transitioning to UMassD workshop for our neurodivergent community of first year and transfer students.

If you had an IEP / 504 in high school, this program is for you!  We will be discussing differences between high school and college, available resources, tips for success, balancing college life, ways to get involved, the accommodation process, and much more. Come meet new people and learn what to expect starting your college journey!

This virtual event will be August 11 at 11:00am.  Please email access_success@umassd.edu to register. _________________________________
