TOPS RFP Application 2019

Transition. Success. Independence.

The TOPS Program at The Ohio State University Nisonger Center offers individuals ages 18 and older with intellectual and developmental disabilities a unique opportunity to engage in Ohio State academic coursework and work experiences while developing independent living skills and participating in campus and community organizations, social activities, and events.

The TOPS Program is one of eight Comprehensive Transition and Postsecondary Programs in Ohio that is designed to support students with ID who are seeking to continue academic, career, and independent living instruction at an institution of higher education in order to prepare for gainful employment.
