Personal Success Program

The Personal Success Program (PSP) provides vocational skills training to students challenged with mild to moderate cognitive disabilities. PSP opens the door to students who may not otherwise enter post-secondary education. The purpose is to introduce basic skills and concepts for a variety of professions, while also providing opportunities to experience college life.

Personal Success Program Information Sessions

Requirements for acceptance into the program:

  • Students should contact the PSP Program Coordinator by e-mail or phone at or (847) 543-2990 to set up an initial interview.
  • Students should provide the Program Coordinator with documentation of disability and reading level. At least a 3rd grade reading level is required for success in the program.
  • Students will be asked to sign a behavior agreement in line with College of Lake County’s student code of conduct.


Instructors experienced in the subject area team teach with a special education instructor. The curriculum is appropriate to the learning level of the student and delivered at a slower pace.

All classes are not offered every semester.

Kudos for PSP at CLC

"Eric has been enriched by the opportunity to thrive as a non-academic college student in a college environment, to navigate the various CLC campuses and to access his transportation through SEDOL. Eric is very proud of himself and reminds me that he is, in fact, going to college. 'I got this!' he often says to me."

— John H., father of Eric, student in Personal Success Program (PSP)
