I saw the following posted on my chronic fatigue group. I did not check it out, but anyone who wants to go to college with POTS might want to look into it.

The Chronic Illness Initiative

> Have you had difficulty completing your undergraduate degree because of a

> disability? Do you have an illness that makes it difficult to meet the

> time and attendance requirements of a traditional program?

>

> DePaul University's School for New Learning (SNL) has launched an

> initiative to expand access to higher education to those disabled by

> chronic illness. In the past, students with chronic relapsing and

> fatiguing illnesses such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Rheumatoid

Arthritis,

> and Gulf War Syndrome have found it difficult, if not impossible, to meet

> the requirements of a conventional college program. Now, SNL has

> instituted procedures to help these students.

> SNL allows you to:

> * Earn your entire degree online.

>

> * Pace your progress through the degree requirements.

>

> * Get help from a special advisor.

> * Complete courses interrupted by symptoms.

> Features of the BA program:

learning
