More deaf students graduated from college in the United States in 1987 than were enrolled altogether just 25 years ago (Walter 1989). Yet this number is only about 30% of those who attempt postsecondary studies. In light of this estimated 70% withdrawal rate, we must ask whether the special needs of deaf students are being met in a manner that provides them equal opportunity to succeed at the postsecondary level (Stinson and Walter, 1992, p 57).
