Applications available for LIFE program

Online applications are now available for Coastal Carolina University's new LIFE (Learning Is For Everyone) program for students with intellectual disabilities. The program begins in fall 2009.

Coastal Carolina University LIFE is designed to promote a smooth and effective transition from secondary school to a four-year higher education institution.

Information on the structure and cost of the program, as well as an application, is available at http://www.coastal.edu/cec/LIFEprogram.html.

The Coastal Carolina University LIFE program is funded by a three-year, $155,000 grant from the College Transition Connection (CTC), with support from state appropriations.

The pilot cohort of up to eight students will be admitted in August, with newstudents accepted each fall thereafter. The program will enable students with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to address four key primary areas: (1) academic enrichment, (2) socialization, (3) independent living skills and (4) competitive or supported employment.

For more information, contact the Biddle Center for Teaching, Learning and Community Engagement at Coastal Carolina University by e-mail at BiddleCenter@coastal.edu, by telephone at 843-349-2665, or visit: http://www.coastal.edu/cec/LIFEprogram.html
