Inclusive Post-Secondary Education: Application Deadline Jan. 31
About Inclusion Alberta’s Inclusive Post-Secondary Education Initiative:
Inclusion Alberta, in partnership with post-secondary institutions across the province offers Inclusive Post-Secondary Education supports to student with developmental disabilities. This support is tailored to each individual student to assist them to succeed in meaningfully participating in university and college programs of study, getting involved in campus and community life, and securing paid employment. This unique initiative enhances the learning environment for everyone involved.
Students who are eligible for Disability Services (formerly PDD) supports typically audit courses in a program of study of their interest, which helps them achieve the most beneficial learning experience possible. An Educational Facilitator works closely with students and faculty to modify and adapt coursework to individualize a student’s pace of study. In addition to campus life, this year-round support assists students in attaining employment during the summer months with the objective to obtain a meaningful career upon the completion of studies. There are no specific academic requirements – all applications will be considered regardless of a prospective student’s support needs (if the prospective student can confirm Disability Services supports eligibility).
The following inclusive post-secondary education institutions partnered with Inclusion Alberta will be accepting applications the Fall 2018 academic year.
Please note that the application deadline is January 31st, 2018. All applicants must be prepared to start receiving supports July 3, 2018.
