Course Plan & Tuition

LIFE students audit college-level courses in area(s) of interest. Beginning the second semester, we devote more time to developing certain skills and interests with individualized class content, social skills classes, and the college courses that relate to each student's focus.

Like any other college student, LIFE students' class times vary based on selected coursework. Our students typically spend at least four hours on campus, four days per week.

At program completion, LIFE students receive a Certificate of Achievement for completing their individualized goals and required hours.
