Students with intellectual disabilities enjoy the college experience through The Arc Jacksonville On Campus Transition (OCT) Program at the University of North Florida. Through OCT, adults can transition into adulthood alongside their contemporaries, maturing together in an environment that fosters independence while including supports. OCT students follow a unique and customized plan for achievement, rather than a structured curriculum. Their individual Program of Study focuses upon: academic enhancement, career development, university life, health/personal growth, and independent living/community life. Students are encouraged and empowered to act as self-advocates and to further enhance their self-determination by careful selection of their Program of Study.
