The Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment (ICE) Program at Middlesex Community College is a dual enrollment opportunity for high school students with intellectual disabilities, ages 18* to 21, who attend a participating school district.
New students begin by using public transportation to spend two full days on campus and audit a course which does not carry prerequisites. Students enrolled in the ICE Program attend MCC for one to four semesters and create individual plans which include academic, personal, career and social goals.

 ICE Program students receive:

  • Specialized enrollment, registration and academic advising
  • Community-based employment and individualized career support
  • Educational coaches and peer mentors
  • Participation in selected co-curricular events at UMass Lowell
  • Full access to MCC clubs, student activities, Fitness Center and academic resources

 ICE Program students work towards increasing:

  • Independence and Confidence
  • Social and Communication Skills
  • Friendships and Networks
  • Campus Life Involvement
  • Competitive Employment Skills
  • Student Success Skills
  • Wellness and Accomplishment

The ICE Program is supported by the MAICEI state-funded grant awarded to MCC, LABBB Collaborative and Bedford Public Schools for the academic years 2014-2018. *18 and 19 year old students must NOT have passed MCAS
