<p>Lone Star College lifePATH® is a four-year comprehensive model of post-secondary educational opportunities for students who have disabilities that affect executive functioning. lifePATH focuses on academic readiness, social expectations, and career exploration. Students are selected as part of a cohort the first two years and take classes together on the foundation path. After two years, students can exit the cohort and pursue other certificate or degree programs offered at Lone Star College with wrap around supports by choosing the academic path. Students who remain in the cohort will spend the last two years earning the Occupational and Life Skills Associate degree (OLSA), as well as the Business Operations Certificate.</p>

Information on special classes:

<p>Universally Designed Classes All lifePATH™ classes are limited to 15 students. The small teacher to student ratio allows for a more individualized approach than the typical college classroom. Classes are universally designed to meet the needs of diverse learners. As a result, learning accommodations occur naturally within lifePATH™ courses. Accommodation needs that are not met naturally within the lifePATH™ classroom are coordinated through Disability Services. During years three and four, students who enroll in LSC credit courses, enroll in courses with the general LSC population. Classroom expectations for lifePATH™ students will be the same as for all LSC students. Teacher to student ratios, classroom design, and student objectives will not be modified. All lifePATH™ students are expected to adhere to the Lone Star College Student Code of Conduct.</p>
