Frequently Asked Questions for OCT Students

  • What will the OCT Program offer you?
    The OCT Program will provide an authentic college experience where students will learn to become more independent individuals. Students will receive academic enhancement through auditing courses of their choosing, receive weekly academic advising, obtain academic mentors, and receive remedial tutoring. In addition, students will receive training in daily life skills (money management, transportation training, cooking, etc.). Socioemotional development will be provided through training and workshops offered by the campus, social mentoring from UNF students, and friendship training from a behavioral analyst. Students will also experience “UNF Life”. They will have the opportunity to participate in campus wide events, student organizations, student clubs, and intramural sports. Employment services are provided to students, where students will obtain pre-employment training, job development services, job coaching, and have various work experiences through service learning opportunities, on campus internships, and job opportunities. It is optional for students to participate in the OCT Residential Program, where they receive first-hand experience in how to live independently. Most importantly, students will make memories and friends that will last a lifetime.
