The creators of The Achieve Degree at Sage recognize that the college decision is a big step for any student — but especially for students with autism spectrum disorders or other learning differences. For these students and families, the idea of attending college can be challenging, even overwhelming. It takes a great deal of time to consider the possibilities, find the right fit and plan how to participate in a college program.
To make those steps easier, Sage is offering the first course in the program, an eight-week online course, as a "trial course" at no cost or obligation to continue in the program.
The next trial course will be offered June 30 - August 22, 2013.
The course is a one-credit Life Laboratory on "Online Learning & Time Management" designed to provide students interested in the Achieve Degree with a full trial of the program’s learning modalities and support services while they complete one of the bachelor’s program’s required courses.
Registration is limited to 15 spots per session, and admission is contingent upon acceptance of application for the trial session. Students who choose to continue on in the Achieve Degree program will receive full academic credit for course completion.
If you or a student you know is interested in participating, contact Wendy Diefendorf, Achieve Degree admission director, at (518) 292-8615 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications received after the priority application deadline of June 1 are reviewed on a space availability basis. The free application can be completed online. Students can also apply to start the full Achieve Degree program in Fall 2013 or Spring 2014.
