About

UNC Greensboro’s Beyond Academics is a program for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are interested in furthering their education.

Comprehensive transition and postsecondary education programs like ours empower students as they transition into adulthood. Beyond Academics’ four-year Integrative Community Studies certificate – awarded by UNCG’s Office of the Provost – emphasizes self-determination, life planning, and career development.

With access to an array of campus and community resources, each Beyond Academics student develops a personalized plan to optimize their educational and life experiences in the program. Resources include individualized support, available during the week and weekends, focusing on co-currricular activities, including campus involvement, and personal skill development.
