Consider a Comprehensive Transition and Post-Secondary (CTP) Program

A CTP program is a special program of study that some colleges offer. It's designed for students with learning or social issues, and gives them extra support. It includes services like:

  • Academic advising

  • A chance to take some specialized classes and some typical classes

  • Internships or job training

  • Social skills mentoring 

Nicholls State University and Bossier Parish Community College are the only schools in Louisiana with CTP programs. (You can find them at the link above.)
