College With Disabilities is a website and blog that brings real-life knowledge of the higher education system to students, parents, professionals, and others about what to expect when attending college with a disability. It is the only website that is based on direct experience with the college system and students who are currently attending.

College With Disabilities is operated by Jeff Ludovici, a national-level Higher Education Consultant that works directly with students across the U.S. He is contacted by thousands of students and families each year, and has had clients at hundreds of colleges such as George Washington, Marist, UCLA, Washington State, Florida International, Texas Tech, Lehigh, Swathmore, Arizona State, Sarah Lawrence, and dozens more. He has also worked with students internationally, and has had students at McGill (Canada), St. Andrews (Scotland), and the University of Manchester (England). Jeff has also heard from students in India, Pakistan, Singapore, Japan, and from hundreds at both two-year and four-year colleges in the U.S.

Jeff holds both a B.S. in psychology and an M.A. in clinical psychology, and is the former Director of an outpatient center. He has worked directly with students since 1997, and brings a deep level of understanding of student disabilities to his college work.
