How to Apply to UNT WISE Summer Transition Programs
The UNT WISE Virtual Transition Program assists young adults with disabilities, ages 14-22, to develop vocational skills, independent living skills, and social & recreation skills through an intensive virtual training program. The Virtual Transition Program is a six (6) week program for participants interested in vocational planning and/or post-secondary education for their future. This program opens the door to the realities of the adult world of work and living.
The training is comprised of six (6) modules to be completed over a six (6) week course. The course is outlined where students complete one (1) module per week. Each module will include a number of lessons and activities which will be self-paced or synchronized. Self-paced activities allow the students to work through the material at their own pace; they can utilize instructor office hours to ask questions or schedule one-on-one assistance as needed. Synchronized activities require the student to log into the online classroom at a specific time in order to participate. The virtual training will include the following focus areas:
In order to apply for this program, participants will need to contact their Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Counselor through Texas Workforce Solutions (TWS). The VR Counselor is the point of contact in order to apply for the program. If you/your student does not have a VR Counselor they are currently working with please contact your nearest TWS-VR office by entering your zip code, VR Office Locator. Our programs are funded by TWS-VR, so the earlier you/your student can get connected the better. You can also complete the online VR Self-Referral by clicking on the following link: VR Self-Referral. .
UNT WISE is now accepting applications directly from VR Counselors as of March 1st, 2023.
