In 2020, the Office of Postsecondary Education in the US Department of Education funded 22 model demonstration projects called Transition and Postsecondary Programs for Students with Intellectual Disabilities (TPSIDs). These grantees are charged with creating or expanding inclusive higher education programs for students with intellectual disability (ID) with technical assistance and support from the National Coordinating Center.
The Annual Report provides program- and student-level data reported by the TPSIDs during the 2020-2021 academic year. Program data reflect program characteristics, academic access, supports for students, and integration of the 38 programs implemented during the first year of FY 2020-2025 funding. This report also provides information on the strategic partnerships and financial sustainability of TPSID programs. Student data reflect study demographics, course enrollments, employment activities, and engagement in student life.
