The Massachusetts Concurrent Enrollment Initiative is a unique partnership between colleges and high schools. It is funded via Massachusetts legislative grants and monitored by the Department of Higher Education. Massasoit's Massachusetts Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment Initiative IMAICEI) program provides a college experience to high school students with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities. MAICEI students are 18-21 years old and are receiving special education services under IDEA in their local school district. Each student who participates in the MAICEI program will enroll in one college course in the Fall semester and one college course in the Spring semester. In addition, MAICEI students will also participate in career and academic counseling with the MAICEI Coordinator and MAICEI Employment Specialist, campus internships, Transition Topics sessions and meet with Peer Mentors (when available). The ultimate goal of the MAICEI program is to prepare students for paid employment through promotion of self-determination, self-advocacy, increased independence, self-advocacy, increased independence, and improvement of social skills.
