FRCC is collaborating with Colorado State on their Opportunities for Postsecondary Success (OPS) program so that it is open to FRCC students. From the program website:
The OPS program is based out of the Center for Community Partnerships in the Department of Occupational Therapy at Colorado State University. OPS works collaboratively with the Resources for Disabled Students Office and other student service offices. The OPS program focuses on supporting successful postsecondary transition outcomes for people with intellectual disabilities including individuals with an autism spectrum disorder or a brain injury. Program participants are supported in a variety of postsecondary transition avenues ranging from internship experiences, employment preparation, and higher education support. Many program participants are CSU students who need additional support above and beyond academic accommodations provided through the Resources for Disabled Students Office.
The OPS program is a fee for service program for students with disabilities. Additionally, students with an intellectual disability including an autism spectrum disorder or a brain injury may qualify for a grant funded scholarship; if qualified, OPS support services are provided at no cost for up to three semesters. Scholarship awards are provided on a first come, first serve basis.
