The OASIS Program
A true college experience is more than just the completion of coursework. It is a time for students to grow, make friends and develop skills to succeed - not just in the workplace, but in life. For students with learning differences, the OASIS program at Pace University is designed to do just that.
The Ongoing Academic and Social Instructional Support (OASIS) Program at Pace University provides a comprehensive college support program for students with autism, Asperger Syndrome, learning disabilities, nonverbal learning differences and related challenges. Located on Pace's New York City campus, OASIS is a small, inclusive program to empower academically capable students to succeed in college. Students are matriculated into the bachelor's degree program of their choosing, attend classes and engage in all facets of campus life with other Pace students. Most OASIS students reside in dormitories.
