Summary or Abstract : Government reports document that the number of students with learning disabilities (LD) being admitted to postsecondary institutions has grown in recent years. It is reported that students with LD make up approximately 10 of the total college population in the United States. At the same time, other reports and data suggest that many of these LD students may not be prepared for the academic rigor of a postsecondary experience due to their transition experiences both in secondary and postsecondary institutions. Therefore, the purpose of this qualitative case study was to examine the experiences of students with LD in their transition into a postsecondary learning environment and to evaluate the effectiveness of these experiences in giving the LD students a sense of success in their college career. Purposive sampling was utilized. Twenty participants were selected, 10 males and 10 females, who met the following criteria: learning disability diagnosis, 18 years old, and having had an established individual education plan (IEP) during their high school educational experience. Data were collected through individual formal interviews. Emergent themes regarding the students' perceived success or failure of their transition experiences were extracted question by question from the collected interview data and was validated and triangulated through the use of member checking. Based on the collected data, the transition experiences for college students with LD in this study were perceived as difficult yet were also seen as successful. Results of this study will provide insight about the needs of students with LD and will allow the administrations of both secondary and postsecondary institutions to support the development of teaching strategies and services that might improve their chance of success..
