Transition to College:
Attending college for the first time can be exciting, stressful, and unsettling for most students—often more so for those requiring academic accommodations. Students are not only entering a new, larger environment but must also learn to navigate campus services while assuming greater personal responsibility for academic success. Significant differences exist between K-12 and community colleges when it comes to serving students with disabilities. The information below describes what students may expect as they transition to college.
The transition from high school to community college can be exciting and a bit confusing for the student with a disability. There are many new procedures and rules to learn. There are also significant differences between the assistance and accommodations the student received in high school under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) and the services and accommodations the student may receive at the community college under Section 504 and The ADA. As a result, Delta College DSPS has created a summer bridge program called Transition for Academic Success is Key (TASK) to help students develop the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in their academic pursuits at Delta College.
TASK is summer bridge program designed for students who learn differently. It is a two-week learning community designed to assist 25 students as they transition from high school to college. The intensive orientation provided through TASK will help students build the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully achieve their academic goals at Delta College.Students will enroll in two one-unit courses: Learning Skills 72: Transition for Academic Success and Guidance 19: Introduction to College. Courses are scheduled to meet Monday through Thursday, June 8th--18th, 8:30 am to 12:30 pm; no Friday classes. Students with an IEP, 504 Plan, and/or Psych Evaluation are eligible to participate. Priority consideration will be given to five students from each of the following high school districts: Stockton, Lincoln, Lodi, Manteca, and Tracy. Students from other districts may be considered. Applications accepted beginning April 6, 2015, and until spaces are filled.
