WVU Country Roads Program

An on-campus program designed for individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities

Due to ongoing COVID-19 precautions and planning, the Country Roads program will be shifting to a hybrid program for the 2020-21 academic year. This change includes all of the intended instruction in areas of social, occupational, and independent living skills through a Telehealth format. Unfortunately, Country Roads students will not be able to live on-campus in the dormitory this year.

Despite this change, our goal is to introduce as much experience with campus life as possible. Given this, students will have planned visits to campus throughout the fall and spring semesters. These visits will build on the remote learning throughout the semester as well as include fun with students throughout the campus in a safe way.

Please note that given these changes, we are removing tuition and fees for students accepted this year. We are also wanting to extend the deadline for applications. If interested in the program, please submit an application no later than August 1, 2020.

Our Program

The goal of the program is to prepare students with disabilities for independence by providing academic courses, social engagement and real-world work experiences. Students will live in a shared residential housing arrangement, participate in social activities across campus and receive career education and training.
