Transition

The follow tutorials are for students who are transitioning to Northeastern University’s Disability Resource Center or Learning Disabilities Program.  Each session will outline important information about making the transition from high school to college.  After viewing and completing the activities in each session, students should gain a better understanding of how their new postsecondary environment will impact their college experience.
