The Transition Handbook for Students and Parents is for students with disabilities who are about to enter Bismarck State College, and for their guidance counselors and parents.  It provides basic, helpful information for students with disabilities.  The purpose of this handbook is to help ease the transition from high school to college, thereby increasing the likelihood for success in the first year and beyond.

The challenge for students, parents, college staff, and faculty members is to work together while adhering to academic standards, developing the student's independence, and providing appropriate guidance and support.  At BSC, we build collaborative partnerships that foster independence and provide equal access to the educational experience.  We look forward to those relationships.
