  • Colleges for Students with Asperger's: The Friendly Ones: Marcia Rubinstien, an educational consultant, also identified these colleges as offering a supportive environment and personnel experienced working with students with Asperger's Syndrome and other spectrum disorders. A wide range of students might be attracted to the support and caring of these colleges.
  • Colleges for Students with Asperger's: The Very Friendly Ones: These are colleges with identified programs for students with Asperger's Syndrome. Asperger's Syndrome is a term used for students who may have difficulty adjusting to social situations, picking up social cues, and making transitions. Marcia Rubinstien, an educational consultant in Hartford, Connecticut, chose these colleges on the basis of factors such as acceptance of social and learning style differences, a good support system in residence life and academic affairs, easy access to disability support, and trained faculty and staff. Such characteristics might be appropriate for a wide range of students.
  • Colleges Where Students With Learning Differences Succeed: As an expert on learning disabilities programs, Melinda Kopp knows more than we do--we can admit it! She's a Denver-based educational consultant, and she handpicked the following colleges for LD students.
  • Colleges with Accessible Teachers for Students with Learning Disabilities: The professors at these schools don't let anyone fall behind. For that, we think they should get an extra apple on their desk. Did we say apple? We meant a 25% raise.
  • The Experts' Choice: Colleges Where Students with a Learning Disability Succeed: Learning disabilities or not, we're all still going for a naked midnight run through the quad together.

CollegeXpress helped in my journey by comparing multiple colleges for my final decision. While looking at different colleges, I was able to compare the tuition expenses and that landed me with the college that I’m currently enrolled in, Western Kentucky University. Thank you!

High School Class of 2023

Being a sophomore in high school, I never really worried about college. I thought it wasn't important to worry about until senior year. Through this program opportunity I came across, I realized how important it is to start looking at colleges early and start planning ahead. CollegeXpress has opened my eyes to what colleges require, what colleges are near me, and what they offer. The daily emails I get from CollegeXpress really help me look at the different options I have and what colleges I fit into. Without this website, I would not be taking the time out of my day to worry about what my future will be nor what opportunities I have. I could not be more grateful for such an amazing and useful website. It's thanks to CollegeXpress that not only me but my family now know how much potential I have in to getting into these colleges/universities that we thought were out of my reach.

CollegeXpress helped me find Allegheny College with the super-user-friendly search tool for both schools and scholarships. Using CollegeXpress, I was able to search for programs I was interested in studying and find colleges that offered those programs. Also, once you search for the college, CollegeXpress can get you connected!
