What link does the agency have to the IEP?
They have little to none, students come in with an IEP, but that is just the start. IEP's are made for high school environments, where students go home every night to their own home. Now that they are in college, they are living on campus usually. So instead of just needing help in the school, they need help in their everyday living outside of school. This would include living in the dorms, getting meals at the different buildings on campus, and also just getting around the campus to all their classes. Unlike high school, not all of their classes are going to be in the same building and they also won't have as much time to get to other classes. They only do accommodations, because unlike high school they can't change the curriculum the student is learning or give them extra time to get to their classes.
