The On Campus Transition (OCT) program is a partnership of The Arc Jacksonville and the University of North Florida (UNF). This innovative program provides young adults with developmental disabilities the unique opportunity of having an authentic college experience while receiving transition services in an inclusive and integrated environment. The OCT is a private school (funding may be provided via McKay Scholarship) that serves students ages 18 and up who have completed high school course work. Students participate in all aspects of college life by auditing UNF courses, joining campus organizations and clubs, and participating in recreational/leisure activities enjoyed by all UNF students. Students also have the opportunity to live in off-campus student housing or in UNF's dormitories through the IDYLLIC (Including Disabled youth Living and Learning In College) residential program.
