Support for College Students with Disabilities
As announced by Governor DeWine, all eligible college students with disabilities will receive up to $1,000 for tuition or educational expenses for the 2022-2023 school year while participating in the Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) services. For more details visit the Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities website.
OOD vocational rehabilitation counselors assist students with disabilities with career exploration and counseling, assistive technology, resume and interview preparation, and job placement. Staff with OOD's business relations team connect college students with disabilities to internship and permanent employment opportunities.
To get started, students with disabilities can visit OODWorks.com to explore vocational rehabilitation, take a self-assessment, and apply for services.
