Leaving College with Lots of Benefits – But No Degree

Leaving College with Lots of Benefits – But No Degree

Going to college can be a key experience in a young person's life, leading to friendships, personal growth, a degree — and, of course, future employment. The number of college-based programs for students with intellectual disabilities is growing across the country, and they often provide many of those benefits — except for a traditional degree. In the second episode of Exited, meet three young people as they leave college experiences for the real world.
