Individuals with disabilities are attending postsecondary institutions and
successfully completing both 2-year and 4-year degrees. Although current
literature identifies numerous factors associated with success for 2-year
college transfer students in general, given the unique needs of individuals
with disabilities, it is possible that other factors play important roles in their
postsecondary experience. Through phenomenological research, we
explored the experiences of a diverse group of 10 academically successful
students with disabilities who transferred from 2-year to 4-year postsecondary
institutions. Our findings reveal that although their experiences in many
ways paralleled those of students without disabilities, our participants
identified positive and negative experiences specifically related to their
disabilities. We offer recommendations for 2-year college programming
and support services.
