WHO CAN ATTEND INSIGHT?  INSIGHT is open to any student in Kentucky with a visual impairment who is currently a sophomore, junior, or senior the year in which they apply.  Juniors and sophomores will have priority in the selection process. Participants may attend more than one year.  In the event that more students apply than can be accepted for the program, a waiting list will be created in case of a drop out before the program start. 

 WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN I ATTEND? INSIGHT is intended to give you the opportunity to experience what it will be like when you enter into a post-secondary setting.  You will attend college classes, classes taught  by INSIGHT staff, meet with college staff, live in the dorms with other students, make and keep schedules, and participate in various activities that are like those you would experience if you lived on campus. All participants are supervised at all times and must follow INSIGHT rules and policies.
