We Are UC!

Since its inception in 2012, TAP provides a four-year college experience for individuals with mild to moderate intellectual or developmental disabilities (ID/DD). Students live in the residence halls, attend classes, engage in vocational internships and participate in an active social life. TAP’s mission is to enhance the quality of life of students through advocacy, access, and research. TAP aims to provide a post-secondary experience for all persons who desire it.
