For students with more significant disabilities not typically served at a
community college, Lewis & Clark Community College offers two
programs to meet the unique needs of this population. Information about
the Supported College Transition Program and the College for Life
Program is available in our brochure.
TI2 (Transition, Inclusion, Independence)
will provide a new opportunity at Lewis and Clark for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are in their last year of high school and are interested in transitioning to college. TI2 students will attend L&C for two semesters of dual enrollment with a variety of supports not previously offered at the College including learning coaches and peer mentors to facilitate inclusion.

Supported College Transition Program
The Supported College Transition Program (SCT) was designed for students with little mainstreaming experience in high school and with the academic preparation that indicates they can be successful in smaller sections of college developmental courses (Reading, English, and Math) with the additional support provided by a Study Skills class and a college transition class. SCT courses are college credit courses which are eligible for federal and state financial aid.
College for Life Program
For those students with disabilities who have had few inclusive experiences in high school, the College for Life Program provides courses that continue the educational experience and also provides social growth opportunities on a college campus.
Community College Consortium on Autism and Intellectual Disabilities
Our programs for students with Autism and Intellectual Disabilities were recently spotlighted by the Community College Consortium on Autism and Intellectual Disabilities.
Students with hearing or visual impairments should notify the Student Development Office at least 30 days prior to the first day of classes to ensure that necessary accommodations can be arranged. Because of the demand for qualified interpreters, we may not be able to provide sign language interpreters for students who register late.
Assistive Technology Lab
L&C's Assistive Technology Lab provides computer workstations equipped with screen readers, screen magnification/enlargement software, dictionaries, speech recognition, outlining/brainstorming software, talking calculator and alternative input devices. Please contact Martie Buck at (618) 468-4217 for an appointment.
