MOST Program 

The Molloy Opportunity for Successful Transition (MOST) Program in collaboration with the Mary Quinn’s Mark Foundation provides individuals with developmental disabilities opportunities to identify and develop the social and academic skills required to successfully transition into a meaningful and engaged adult life while participating in a fully inclusive college experience on a non-credit, non-degree basis. Beyond their classrooms, students are encouraged to explore and utilize campus facilities and join campus activities based on their individual areas of talents and interests.
