Students with an intellectual or developmental disability, who are enrolled in a CTP may receive funding from the Federal Pell Grant.  Pell Grants are awarded based on financial need.  Parent financial information is required for determination until a student is 24.

A CTP program for students with intellectual disabilities means a degree, certificate, or non-degree program that:
  • is offered by a college or career school and approved by the U.S. Department of Education;
  • is designed to support students with intellectual disabilities who want to continue academic, career, and independent living instruction to prepare for gainful employment;
  • offers academic advising and a structured curriculum; and
  • requires students with intellectual disabilities to participate, for at least half of the program, in
    • regular enrollment in credit-bearing courses with nondisabled students,
    • auditing or participating (with nondisabled students) in courses for which the student does not receive regular academic credit,
    • enrollment in noncredit-bearing, non-degree courses with nondisabled students, or
    • internships or work-based training with nondisabled individuals.
