The Academy for Inclusive Learning and Social Growth offers a fully inclusive post-secondary college education and experience to students with different intellectual or developmental abilities who do not meet higher-education 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.

The deadline to apply for Fall 2020 is extended to Friday, February 28, 2020. If you are experiencing problems applying, please attend the application workshop on October 21, 2019, at 2 p.m. or give us a call.
