UCLA Extension

Welcome to Pathway

Pathway at UCLA Extension is a sequential program for students with intellectual and other developmental disabilities, offering a blend of educational, social, and vocational experiences, taught and supervised by experienced instructors sensitive to the individual needs of our students. On campus, Pathway students attend classes and participate with UCLA students in the many social, recreational, and cultural activities of a major university.

Come visit us!

To ensure that Pathway is the right fit for you, we invite you and your family to learn more about Pathway at UCLA Extension, and discover the difference a higher quality education program can make. Tours will take approximately 2-hours, and include a virtual presentation and a short trip to the student apartments to observe residential life for a Pathway student. Please wear comfortable walking shoes.

For tours in 2018, please RSVP here.

Applications for the 2018-2019 academic year opened on December 1. Admissions interviews for the Fall 2018 cohort began in January and will remain open until full.

10-Year Anniversary Celebration

Thank you to everyone who supported and attended our 10-Year Anniversary at the Pauley Pavilion Clubhouse! We hope you had a great time – if you’d like to re-live the memories, or you were unable to attend and would like to view photos, please feel free to take a look at the photo album on our Facebook page here.

Special thank you to our generous sponsors – your support helped us to cover all our event expenses and offer ticket sponsorships to our current and former students.  This also means that 100% of ticket sales were able to support the Pathway Student Scholarship Fund!
