Marshall University provides a practical college transition experience each summer during the university's Summer III session. Students interested in college and who have completed their junior year in high school may apply. The deadline for application is May 15, 2010.
Students accepted into the support program live in typical dorms, attend a typical class of their choosing and receive peripheral support from the College Program for Students with Asperger's Syndrome. In addition to daily face-to-face mentoring, students attend skills groups, have access to organized study halls and are included in planned recreational activities.
Contact Rebecca Hansen or Marc Ellison for details regarding the application process and fees that are included.
