Registration is now open for Rowan University’s College Prep Transition Conference, a day-long conference on Saturday, March 10, for high school students with disabilities and their parents.

From living on campus to deciding between a two-year or four-year school to understanding the differences between high school and college, the challenges facing students with disabilities—and their parents—are many.

Presented by Rowan’s Academic Success Center & Disability Resources, the conference is designed to help families learn about resources available to address those challenges.

The conference, which runs from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in Business Hall on Rowan’s Glassboro campus, will provide students with knowledge and understanding of the transition process.

Specific workshops will explore the differences between accommodations in college versus K-12 schools; what parents need to know about transition; utilizing campus resources for college success; deciding between attending a two-year or four-year school; and commuting versus living on campus.

Anthony Davis, executive director of The Mental Health Association of Southwestern New Jersey, will be the keynote speaker.

The conference will include a panel of current Rowan students and parents of students with disabilities, all of whom will share their experiences.

Registration is $50 for individuals, $60 for a parent and student together. Registration for additional attendees is $15.

Registration can made by check or online via credit card at marketplace.rowanonline.com/collegeprep.
