Advancing Students Toward Education and Employment Program
Welcome to ASTEP! (Advancing Students Toward Education and Employment Program)
ASTEP is a transition and postsecondary education program that makes college a reality for young adults with intellectual disabilities. ASTEP uses a person-centered planning process that incorporates the individual’s personal goals, career plans, and dreams into an inclusive education plan to help students learn employment and self-advocacy skills while gaining independence.
Young adults ages 18 to 26 attend college at Minot State University for two to three years where students can earn a College-to-Career certificate, and other career focused certificates.
ASTEP students live on campus or in the community where they enroll in college courses, complete an employment internship, learn independent living skills, and engage in campus and community life. A variety of supports are available in campus, employment, community, and social settings.
The adventure begins!
To learn more about attending college with the ASTEP program, contact the North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities (NDCPD).
