Academic Overview

Professors in The College Experience program combine their expertise in classroom and collegiate-level teaching with their knowledge of the needs of individuals with disabilities to create an atmosphere that is ripe for learning.

Small-group instruction helps students feel comfortable participating in class discussions and asking insightful questions. Students expand their minds by reflecting and generalizing on their experiences. Classroom and homework assignments can include multimedia projects, reading assignments, writing assignments and attending academic and arts events. All courses are graded based on class participation, effort, homework completion and projects. Students must receive passing grades each semester.

Master’s and doctoral-qualified adjuncts from The College of Saint Rose teach a wide range of programs designed with our students in mind. Our graduates leave prepared to begin the next chapter of their lives with the skills and experience they need to succeed in the real world.
