As an educational program of the Center for Career Connections as part of the R.I.S.E. Learning Institute, the Neurodiversity Navigators (formerly Autism Spectrum Navigators) program offers educational opportunities along with individualized advocacy and access services for Neurodivergent Bellevue College students. Students who have met the College admission requirements must fill out an application form and follow the steps on the Next Steps flyer by the deadlines listed.

Our mission is to provide educational opportunities to increase self-knowledge that lead to successful academic outcomes in the areas of executive functioning, self-regulation, social interaction, self-advocacy, and career preparation, along with advocacy and access services for neurodivergent students; and to actively promote a campus and community environment of inclusion and understanding of students, faculty and staff with neurological differences.

Note: Program Entry is Summer only. Current students please see our Current Student page for available supports. Incoming students, we look forward to seeing you starting at our Information Sessions in January 2023!
