You would start talking to your child's school between 10-12th grade to discuss a 'transition plan'. This would include discussing college options. Including Vocational Rehabilitation services fro job training and employment assistance. While there is no IEP for college there is student support such as books on tape and some schools have specialized programs including a buddy program'

Colleges will look at the IEP and may use it as a basis for determining whether,based upon a recent evaluation report ,they are willing or able to provide whatever accommodations are being requested. Though colleges do not follow the IEP and many students/parents find that some of the accommodations their child needed in grade school which enabled them to make progress will suddenly not being provided to them.
