Academy for Inclusive Learning and Social Growth

The Academy offers a fully inclusive college experience to students with different intellectual or developmental abilities who do not meet the university requirements for admission as a degree seeking student. The program involves enrollment as non-degree seeking audit students in typical university courses and includes social integration, career exploration and training resulting in a Certificate of Social Growth and Development.
