MAIHE

The Massachusetts Inclusive Higher Ed (MAIHE) provides enrollment opportunities for transition-aged students, ages 18 or older 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 in partnership with their sending school district, service agency (such as DDS or MRC), and in accordance with their Person Centered Plan. Students have full access to a range of academic, vocational, 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
