UR Transition Pre-Orientation Program
UR Transition is designed to support the needs of students with disabilities beginning their academic journey at Rochester. This program brings first-year students with disabilities and their families together with services to cultivate a supportive relationship and encourage self-advocacy skills, which in turn will ease the transition to university learning.
Students and parents attend workshops and tours facilitated by our access coordinators and study skills consultants, accompanied by Disability Resources student mentors.
