An Overview of CTP programs

In this one hour webinar recording, originally broadcast in January 2020, Lindsay Wertenberger from Federal Student Aid at the U.S. Department of Education shares the basics of Comprehensive Transition and Postsecondary programs (CTP), a type of college program for students with intellectual disability. The presentation shares definitions and regulations from the Higher Education Opportunity Act related to program requirements and explains how students with ID attending approved CTP can access federal student aid. Questions from live attendees were addressed related to details important to understand for those operating or applying to become an approved CTP.

Programs for students with intellectual disability that are interested in applying to become an approved CTP can watch the webinar recording, review the transcript of the presentation, and download the slide deck HERE. A handout summarizing the questions and answers that were addressed during the webinar is also provided.
