SEU Link is a two-year comprehensive postsecondary transition program for students identified with mild intellectual disabilities. Link students may qualify to live on campus in the residence halls. 

Students enrolled in the Link program receive support through trained peer mentors.  SEU Link offers three types of peer mentors (residential, social, and academic.)  Students must be independent enough to navigate the campus independently, as mentors are not with the Link students at all times. Support is also offered through a full time Link Resident Director who lives on campus and meets with students at least weekly to offer support. 

The student's program is individualized through person-centered planning meetings  and individual advising sessions.  Link students attend and audit 2 classes every semester with traditional SEU students in addition to their 2 Link-specific classes.  The Link curriculum targets employability, self-advocacy and independent living skills.  Employability skills are increased through a variety of on and off campus internships.  Link students participate in on and off campus extracurricular and student life activities along side traditional SEU students. 

Link students earn a Certificate of Achievement upon completion of the program along with an industry credential in their chosen career field. They are also able to participate in the graduation ceremony along with traditional SEU students.
