Current Status of Meaningful Credentials for Students With Intellectual Disabilities Attending TPSID Model Demonstration Programs

Current Status of Meaningful Credentials for Students With Intellectual Disabilities Attending TPSID Model Demonstration Programs

In 2010, the Office of Postsecondary Education awarded grants to 27 institutions of higher education (IHEs) to create or expand access to higher education for students with intellectual disabilities in 23 states. These model demonstration projects, known as Transition and Postsecondary Programs for Students with Intellectual Disabilities (TPSIDs), were asked to create meaningful credentials for students who completed their programs. This Fast Fact reviews what kind of credentials are available to students with ID in college.
