The BIGGEST difference is your rights. there are fewer parental rights with a 504. Helpful Link

I agree w/ But mommie- IEP's are more involved, more detailed & offers more options. A 504 is usually for someone w/ a minor learning problem & they don't necessarily last throughout their whole academic life. Check out her link tho. And ask lots of questions at the school.

IEP = Individual education plan
504 = special accommodations are needed (sometimes for a few months to a few years)
