Abstract

This report provides a comprehensive profile of students with disabilities enrolled in postsecondary education. It is based on an analysis of four different surveys conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics, which were used to address the following four issues: 1) representation of students with disabilities enrolled in postsecondary education; 2) who among high school students with disabilities gains access to postsecondary education; 3) among those who enroll in postsecondary education, how well do they persist to degree attainment; and 4) among college graduates, what are the likely early labor market outcomes and graduate school enrollment rates of students with disabilities.
