Elevate at ACC is an inclusive post-secondary option for students with intellectual disabilities.

Elevate at ACC was established to provide inclusive higher education for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to foster academic growth, prepare for gainful employment, develop needed skills for independent living & engage socially with the broader campus community. We believe in every student’s ability to achieve their dreams and create a meaningful future.

Elevate at ACC includes:

  • Student-centered planning
  • Internship opportunities
  • Peer mentoring
  • Career planning
  • Self-determination and goal-setting assistance
  • Individualized academic planning
  • Campus life involvement
  • Independent living skill development
  • Community partnership opportunities

All Elevate at ACC students partner with the Elevate at ACC Coordinator who works with students to draft and implement an individual program of study. Specific courses are determined based on skills and competencies needed for students to achieve identified academic and employment goals. Develop and enhance your academic skills, plan for your career, gain job skills, make lasting friendships, open up possibilities, and much, much more.

Elevate at ACC is a designated Comprehensive Transition Program, which allows students to access federal financial aid.
