Our Admissions Process
Understanding each student’s unique learning profile and history prior to their introduction to the college campus is critical for their success.
We strive to obtain a comprehensive understanding of student needs and appropriateness for our services before we proceed.
Step 1: Contact
Contact Focus Collegiate admissions via phone or e-mail to indicate your interest. We will set up an initial call with you to answer any questions. Our initial calls are usually 30-45 minutes.
Step 2: Submit
Provide us educational testing, IEP, or comprehensive neuropsychological testing via secure method for review. We will also ask to speak with 2-3 professionals who have experience with the student.
Step 3: Match
We conduct a thorough review of diagnostic and psychometric information and contact the provided professionals. If all parties feel we have a possible match, then we proceed.
Step 4: Visit
Schedule an in-person visit. This is designed to be less of an interview and more focused on information gathering and demonstrating student engagement. A visit can happen at a designated location while the student is on a campus visit. If an in-person visit is not possible, perhaps we can come to you or meet at a neutral site.
Step 5: Apply
Provide application and deposit. Only after we have determined that the student is appropriate for Focus Collegiate, do we provide you with an application. Your deposit of $3,000 will hold the space for the student in the upcoming semester.
Step 6: Transition
We often begin working with student and family immediately to ensure smooth transition.
Step 7: Succeed!
Student is on their way to college success and independence!
Only about a third of the students with learning differences who enroll in a four-year college or university graduate within eight years.
One study of undergraduates at a large state university found that the risk of not graduating within six years was 3.5 times higher for students who waited until after their first year in college to request accommodations.National Center for Learning Disabilities
