Understanding the Transition

Going to college can be a significant transition for both the student and the family. For many students, this is the first time they are separating from the family and moving towards independence. This is an exciting time but the transition can also bring up concerns for both the family and the student. For this reason, students with disabilities, and also their families, must understand what it means to transition to a University with a disability and what steps need to be taken in order to receive the full support from the Disability Resources for Students (DRS) at UWB. While the DRS office at UWB cannot promise your student full success, we are committed to ensuring that your student will have equal access to the UWB programs and services. Our team of professionals will do whatever we can to facilitate as many opportunities as possible for the success of students with disabilities.

This webpage is a great place that provides helpful resources and shares the steps the students and family members will need to take for a smoother transition. DRS is excited to be a partner in your student's journey here at the University of Washington, Bothell. Welcome aboard to the husky family.
