Aggies Elevated is a federally designated Comprehensive Transition Program (CTP) at Utah State University that offers a two-year certificate in Integrated College and Community Studies for young adults with intellectual disabilities. The certificate and curriculum have been approved by the Utah Board of Regents and Utah State University as a vocational program.
As a CTP, our students are eligible to complete the FAFSA and receive certain forms of federal financial aid. The goal of Aggies Elevated is competitive, integrated employment (at or above minimum wage) for our graduates.
As of February 8, 2019, our post-graduation employment rate is 100%. ALL of our graduates are currently employed.
In comparison, the Utah Post High School Outcome survey reports a 48% employment rate. Think College reports that for students in federally funded Transition & Post-secondary Programs for Students with Intellectual Disabilities (TPSID) programs, the average employment rate is 61%. The average employment rate for a person with intellectual disabilities in general is 17%.
