Events to Attend

  • Find Your Future

    Held yearly in March

    Find your Future is an event for Dane County high school students with disabilities. Through a variety of speakers, breakout sessions and classroom activities, students will learn what it takes to attend Madison College and what careers are available.

    This is a great opportunity for students to be exposed to the amazing programs at Madison College. Breakout sessions include presentations from Student Life, Advising, Disability Resource Services, a campus tour, technology demonstrations and the opportunity to complete a FREE admission application! 

  • Looking Forward

    Held yearly in November

    Join us for an evening with representatives from organizations offering a variety of post-high school opportunities and support for individuals with disabilities. Even if you are not a senior, this is your opportunity to start planning for your future.

    This event is sponsored by area school districts and Madison College. 

  • Parent Preview

    Held yearly

    This event is focused on helping parents and guardians learn about Madison College and the support services we offer. It is intended to help parents understand the differences between high school and college and to ease concerns they may have about their son or daughter attending college.

    Please note that this event is not intended for students. Incoming students will be invited to a Focus Forward session in August.

A Note for Parents:

Parents are always important, but even more so for students with disabilities. Your role is critical to their success, and DRS honors and wants to support you. The Handbook for Parents of Students with Disabilities (PDF, 191KB) was written with you in mind. In it we:

  • address concerns and questions.
  • describe the new roles you and your child have in the accommodation process.
  • explain how college disability services differ from high school services.

The handbook also introduces some of the legal and philosophical changes that occur for students with disabilities upon graduation from high school and entrance into Madison College.

We encourage you to read it and contact us with any questions you have.
