The Rock Life Program is a two to six year non-degree seeking postsecondary education program for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities, which includes Autism Spectrum Disorder. Program length is dependent upon the student's individual goals and can be longer if necessary.
Rock Life focuses on four main pillars: Academics, Vocational, Physical Activity and Social. Support is provided by undergraduate students hired as "College Coaches." College Coaches work one on one for approximately 10 hours per week with the Rock Life students.
Students enroll in inclusive courses either for audit or for credit and take approximately two classes per semester. Students start working by their second year in the program and are hired at both on and off campus job site locations.
