Learn More About the Achieve Degree at Sage: Free Webinar Series

October 10, 2011 at 11:47 am

When considering a college degree program, lots of people – students, parents, guidance counselors, service providers, etc. – have lots of questions. And when it comes to a degree as unique as ours – a bachelor’s program designed for students with special needs and delivered entirely online – the questions multiply.

Sage is offering a series of four online webinars discussing the new and innovative Achieve Degree program. The Achieve Degree is a breakthrough 4-year degree designed for students who have the ability and ambition, who simply are not comfortable in a traditional classroom. The Achieve Degree was developed by Sage in collaboration with Excelsior College specifically for people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders or other learning disabilities.

While the webinars will be of great interest to those who may be considering the degree for themselves or someone they know, we have designed it so it also appeals to a broader audience. Others will also benefit from the webinar, including those who help students transition out of high school, transfer to a more supportive college program or enter college for the first time even years after high school.
