Admission to the program requires high school completion and a current full and individual psychoeducational evaluation (FIE) that indicates an IQ within 2 standard deviations of the mean of standard scores.
Applicants must show reading, writing, and math levels at a fourth-grade level or better (using standardized assessment tools), and one recommendation letter from a non-family member who has direct knowledge of the applicant’s academic skills and community citizenship will be required.
Furthermore, an interview between the program faculty/ staff and the student applicant will be required for admission. Information from all data sources (FIE, recommendation letter, interview, and high school transcript verifying completion) will be used for admissions decisions and for educational planning purposes.
