CarolinaLIFE is an individualized, non-degree program for students with identified, diverse learning needs (e.g. intellectual disability).  the program curriculum focuses on five core areas:

  • academic instruction
  • career education and training
  • independent living
  • social and community engagement
  • personal development

The program philosophy is founded on inclusion and individualization, based on each student’s interests and support needs. Our application process is simple, but selective, and many of our students qualify for financial aid to help with tuition and other program costs. CarolinaLIFE students have access to opportunities offered to other University of South Carolina students such as participation in UofSC courses, on-campus housing, student organizations, sporting events, work-study, and commencement.

You can find answers to our most frequently asked questions about program eligibility and features on our website or contact our faculty and staff.
