Pellissippi State Community College will host a workshop for high school students with disabilities interested in pursuing a college degree. Parents are invited to attend as well.
The event is meant to provide information to help students make a seamless transition from high school to community college. The workshop is sponsored by the Universal Pathways to Employment Project at Pellissippi State.
The workshop is 6-7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10, in the Goins Building Auditorium on the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road. The session is free, but space is limited. Reserve a spot at www.pstcc.edu/upep.
At the UPEP workshop, students and their parents will learn about the requirements to receive accommodations in college for a disability, how to obtain required testing and paperwork, and other information needed to make a smooth transition to college.
UPEP is funded by a grant from the Office of Disability Employment Policy in the U.S. Department of Labor. UPEP’s goal is to expand Pellissippi State’s capacity to deliver integrated education and career training to students with disabilities.
