WVU Country Roads Program accepting applications

Monday, June 29, 2020

The WVU Country Roads Program is accepting applications for the first cohort starting Fall, 2020.

The new Country Roads Program is an on-campus non-degree certificate program designed for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The goal of the program is to enhance student independence by providing academic courses, social engagement and applied work experiences.

Students enrolled in the program will live in a shared residential housing arrangement, participate in social activities across campus and receive career education and training. The program will include a two-year core track focused on independent-living skills and workforce preparedness, plus the option of an advanced track for an additional two years. During the advanced track, students will apply their new skills in workplace settings and can enroll in select WVU certificate programs.

Applications will be reviewed as received until all spaces are full. Please submit the completed application no later than July 15, 2020.
