The Cutting-Edge Program at Edgewood College is a new, universal access approach to inclusion in college for adult learners with significant disabilities.
Program participants have either traditionally not been able to meet the standard admissions criteria for college, or require additional supports in order to be successful in a college environment.
Edgewood College is the first four-year college in Wisconsin to offer such a program to adult learners who have significant disabilities.
The program has a set of core credit courses (a total of 5 credits each semester) that are required for students. In addition, Cutting-Edge students are encouraged to take 1 to 4 general education courses per semester.
The process of inclusion is facilitated by the Director of the program, and by peer mentors who are paired with the Cutting-Edge students in academic and social situations.
For more information about the Cutting-Edge Program, please call (608) 663-2340 or email: email@example.com.
To apply for the Cutting-Edge Program, please read the application for admission letter then complete the Cutting-Edge Application.

Program candidates and their parents are interviewed by a selection committee. Candidate selection is not based on the student's disability, but rather on the student's level of motivation to attend college and their ability to serve as ambassadors of the Cutting-Edge program.
Candidates who are accepted into the Cutting-Edge program submit a $2,000 deposit, which is credited toward tuition.
