Our mission is to offer a fully inclusive college experience for students with intellectual disabilities (ID) with the expectation that matriculated students will have access and opportunity to the same services, programs and courses as other PSU students. Each student's college experience is individually designed to support inclusive academic and career experiences leading to meaningful, integrated employment and self-determination. At the completion of this 4-year college experience, successful students earn the pre-baccalaureate certificate of Career and Community Studies (CCS).
