***NOTE: Think College Wyoming is not currently accepting students, until further notice.***

Applying the principles of inclusion and self-determination, Think College Wyoming offers college experiences for young adults with intellectual disability. Students enrolled in TCW will follow the inclusive individual support model that facilitates access to and participation in college courses. There is no program base on campus. Students participate in the campus community just like any other college student. The focus is on establishing a student-identified future vision and career goal that directs the course study and employment experiences.
