Maryland’s first 4-year college program for young adults with intellectual disabilities is living up to its name.
Now in its second year, the SUCCESS program — which stands for Students United for Campus-Community Engagement for Post-Secondary Success — has seen the number of applicants nearly triple.
The program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, is currently the only opportunity for Marylanders with intellectual disabilities, like autism or Down syndrome, to participate in classes and internships alongside their peers at a 4-year college. It is a non-degree program that focuses on preparing students for employment and independent living, said Michele Wolff, who oversees the program.
