The College to Career (C2C) program can accept up to 20 students per academic year. We currently accept applications at any time throughout the year and will work with you on which semester you would like to begin your college classes. We encourage you to apply early.

    • Being on the Autism Spectrum may qualify on a case by case basis.
    • Unsure about your eligibility and willing to complete processes to determine your eligibility.
  • Client of Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) or willing to become a client prior to starting the

College is a student driven process!
