About Life College

Life College is a two year program with the flexibility to best fit the needs of each individual student and their families. Some students may spend more, or less, than one year in the First Year program or the Second Year Program.

First Year

  • Students attend Life College year-round

  • 9:00am – 3:00pm, Monday through Friday

  • Classes in the morning

  • Internships in the afternoon

Classes are held at Stanbridge University's Irvine campus. Our class sizes are small and personal to best provide the necessary support for all students. The Life College internships are within automotive dealerships that teach students transferable job skills such as office administration (filing, scanning and data entry), and warehousing (inventory, stocking, and order fulfillment) while demonstrating the soft skills necessary to maintain gainful employment.

Second Year
At the end of the first year, an Individualized Transition Plan (ITP) is developed and implemented starting the second year. This plan may include attending Irvine Valley College with the full support of Life College assistants and tutors, or transitioning to employment with the support of a Life College Job Coach.
