This paper analyzes information obtained from the Integrated Post-Secondary Educational Data System (IPEDS) to examine higher education services to students with disabilities in large city urbanized areas. Two research questions are reviewed. The first reviews the percentages of formally registered disabled students in public and proprietary 2-year degree granting institutions in US large city urbanized areas. The second tests for differences in the percentage of formally registered disabled students between public and proprietary 2-year degree granting institutions in US large city urbanized areas.
