Vandal QUEST (Quality University Experiences to Support Transition) is an inclusive postsecondary program designed to provide opportunities for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities at the University of Idaho. The primary goal of Vandal QUEST is to provide access for students who are unable to meet traditional admissions requirements due to disability.
