Integrated Studies

integrated studies

Integrated Studies, is a two or four-year postsecondary initiative for young adults with an intellectual disability who are interested in participating in an academic, vocational and social university experience. Integrated Studies is the first residence hall based residential program in the state of PA.

Each student receives person-centered planning through the creation of a PATH (Planning Alternative Tomorrows With Hope) to identify their vocational goal and establish an individual plan for employment. Students receive support from trained personnel, including coaches, mentors, faculty and staff.

Integrated Studies students become fully immersed in the Millersville campus community as an integral part of residential life. Our goal is to create inclusive communities where students feel connected, are involved in the university community and are academically, residentially and vocationally successful.

integrated studies & financial aid eligibility

Students enrolled in the Integrated Studies program are considered non-degree seeking students and not eligible for federal loans. However, Millersville has a partnership with the Department of Education that allows students who are enrolled in the Integrated Studies program to be considered for other types of federal aid. Therefore, it is encouraged that students complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA becomes available each year beginning October 1.

Students in the Integrated Studies program may be considered eligible for the following types of financial aid:


FEDERAL PELL GRANT


The U.S. Department of Education determines a student's eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant once a FAFSA application has been completed. The Pell Grant is awarded to eligible undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's degree. Click here to learn more!


WORK-STUDY


The U.S. Department of Education determines a student's eligibility for the Federal Work-Study once a FAFSA application has been completed. Work-study is awarded to eligible undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's degree. Click here to learn more!


PRIVATE/ALTERNATIVE LOANS


Private Education Loans, also known as Alternative loans are educational loan programs established by private lenders to supplement the funding that students and parents receive from federal and state sources. Private loans have different lending criteria than government lending programs. Click here to learn more about Private/Alternative Loans!

As a non-degree seeking student, students must apply with a lender that does not require the student to be degree-seeking.
