Applicants who wish to be considered for the Fall semester should return the completed application no later than February 1st. Applications for the Spring semester must be received by November 1st.
Applications for the Summer Transition Summer Program must be received by May 1st.
Admission to The College Program does not guarantee admission to Marshall University, as applications to the university and to the college support program are separate processes.
An application to the support program is considered “complete” and will be accepted only if it includes:
- A clinical psychological evaluation (school-based, or psycho-educational evaluations, will not be accepted) dated within three years of this application;
- The results from an intelligence evaluation, such as the WAIS-III, accompanied by subtest scores and a detailed, narrative report;
- Results from achievement testing (for example, the Woodcock-Johnson Achievement and the Peabody Individual Achievement tests);
- The most recent IEP or 504 Plan, if one is in place for a current student.
- For students who have previous college experience: an unofficial transcript from that institution, or other documents that detail classes taken and grades earned.
Each completed application will be reviewed thoroughly by staff after the deadline for submissions to ensure all requirements are met. Applicants who meet the requirements and who have documentation to suggest The College Program will be a good fit for their needs will be invited for an interview. Admission decisions to The College Program for Students with ASD will be based upon interviews, application materials, and the number of spots open and available to new students in the coming term.
Virtual visits can be scheduled Monday through Friday 8:00am – 3:30pm.
