The Center for Access and Accommodations also offers programs for students with intellectual/developmental disabilities (ID/DD) not typically served at a community college:

Supported College Transition Program (SCT)

The Supported College Transition program (SCT) is designed for students with little mainstreaming experience in high school and with the academic preparation that indicates they can be successful in smaller sections of college developmental courses (Reading, English and Math) with the additional support provided by a Study Skills class and a college transition class. SCT courses are college credit courses which are eligible for federal and state financial aid.

College for Life Program

The College for Life program is designed for students who have had few inclusive experiences in high school or who choose not to seek a college credential. The program provides courses that continue the educational experience, while promoting self-advocacy skills and inclusive social growth opportunities on a college campus.
