CLSC (pronounced “classic”) offers individuals with intellectual disabilities academic, career, and independent-living instruction at UD that prepares them for future employment or further education. As day students or students living on campus in residence halls, for two years or four years, they participate in classes, clubs, campus events, internships, and work experiences.
