TAP Into the Future!
The Transition & Access Program (TAP) is a four-year college education for students with mild to moderate intellectual or developmental disabilities (ID/DD). TAP students earn a university recognized certificate upon completion of the four-year program. TAP envisions a world where young adults with ID/DD are afforded the option of post-secondary education. TAP is emerging as a leader in creating an authentic inclusive living-learning opportunity that builds career skills, academic achievement, personal responsibility, social networks, and a promising future.
Live, Work, Learn, and Lead
* TAP students live in inclusive residence halls and have access to all that UC has to offer. What better way to increase independence and engage in a vibrant community!
* TAP students have multiple opportunities to work in internships, engage in career exploration, and ultimately gain meaningful employment.
* TAP students are UC students first and learning is a priority. The TAP curriculum focuses on the whole person and helps develop personal goals, social capital, healthy living skills, and self-advocacy.
* TAP students are leaders. Students are actively involved in student organizations and develop effective communication, decision- making, and problem solving skills to become strong community leaders.
