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 2019, please RSVP here.
