The Massachusetts Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment Initiative (MAICEI) provides dual enrollment opportunities for transition-aged students, ages 18 - 22 with intellectual disabilities and/or autism spectrum disorder. Students participate in a fully inclusive college experience and have the opportunity to take college courses, for credit or audit, with supports determined through their IEP and TPF. Students have full access to a range of academic and student-centered services on campus.
Students can use the experiences they gain at HCC to:
- Build their independence and self-determination
- Achieve their transition goals in a setting that is socially valued
- Learn with their age-appropriate peers in an inclusive community environment
- Explore careers through coursework, community-based internships, and employment
partner public school districts
- East Longmeadow
- Hampshire Regional
- West Springfield
Students and families work with their transition teams to determine if the MAICEI program is right for them.
