Regis University’s GLOBAL Inclusive College Certificate is a higher education program that provides a collegiate experience for young people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The academic coursework and career exploration prepare these students for employment and independent living with the overall goal of self-sufficiency in adulthood. As the only Jesuit Catholic IDD program in the country, the GLOBAL Inclusive Program fosters the inherent dignity and autonomy of all students. It is open to students of any or no faith tradition. The GLOBAL Inclusive Program is made possible by the support of the Anna and John J. Sie Foundation and the GLOBAL Down Syndrome Foundation (GLOBAL). Students must have a diagnosed intellectual developmental disability to be considered for the GLOBAL Inclusive Program. Applicants do not apply to Regis using traditional application procedures. Once in the program, students complete 12-30 credit hours using a combination of modifications and accommodations. Upon successful completion, students are awarded a Credential of Completion at the University’s annual commencement ceremonies.
