College Fair for Students with Disabilities

Please join us for the 1st Annual New Jersey College Fair for students with disabilities! This event, run by The Family Resource Network in partnership with the NJ Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired and the NJ Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, is an exciting opportunity for high school students and their families to learn about disability-specific college resources and services. We understand that it is frustrating to attend a traditional college fair and walk away with disability related questions and concerns that have not been addressed. College recruiters and Disability Service Office personnel, from a wide range of institutions, will be available to answer any questions students and their families have related to a specific college, including accessibility, accommodations, transportation, academics, and social life. There will also be breakout sessions where students and their families can learn about financial aid, assistive technology, support services for college students, and a student/disability services panel. Please find the event details below.

When: Saturday, September 22, 2018, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Where: DCF Training Academy, 30 Van Dyke Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901
