Massachusetts Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment Initiative (MAICEI)
The MAICEI program at Cape Cod Community College is a fully inclusive postsecondary program for adult high school students (aged 18-22), with intellectual/developmental disabilities.
A Building Block for the Future
The mission of the program is to provide college experiences to increase self-determination, dignity and worth
Students in the MAICEI program share the same experiences as their college aged peers in the areas of academics and socialization
With additional supports in place, CCCC MAICEI students may enroll in courses for credit or as an audit experience, attend clubs and campus events, and socialize with peers.
The program has been tremendously successful as students gain independence, further develop communication skills, and are actively engaged in creating their lives.
Participation in the MAICEI program is contingent on a partnership agreement with the student’s sending high school district. MAICEI is a Commonwealth of Massachusetts grant funded program through the Department of Higher Education. The expectation is that the program will move towards full sustainability with the understanding that partner districts will contribute to the overall cost of the program. Tuition, books, and related supplies have been covered by the program traditionally. Support services such as tutoring, coaching, and advising, are also part of the MAICEI experience.
