Deciding whether to disclose to a potential school that you use cochlear implants may be a difficult decision for you, especially if you don’t use any or many accommodations in high school.

It is easier to disclose that you use cochlear implants, provide documentation to receive accommodations, and determine what accommodations the college can provide and not use them, than it is to go to the Office of Disability Services part way through the semester to try to get accommodation once you’re struggling.

Once you pick a college, you can determine to what extent you want to disclose your hearing loss to others.
