College Assistance Program
The College Assistance Program (CAP) at Iona College is an optional, fee-based program that offers comprehensive support and services for students with learning disabilities, AD/HD, traumatic brain injuries or are on the autism spectrum. CAP is a comprehensive, skills-based support program that operates in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act as amended (ADAAA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
Comprised of a team of professional learning specialists who are devoted to the support and guidance of each student, staff train students to incorporate appropriate skills-based strategies that cross disciplines. The goal is for students to gradually practice these skills until they are able to perform them independently. With success comes self-confidence and the ability to outline and achieve academic, personal and career goals. Additionally, the CAP counselor assists students with academic coaching, stress management, and career and internship planning.
Students must apply to CAP in order to be considered for admission into the program. If you are interested in applying to CAP, we encourage you to attend one of our Information Sessions.
