The Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment (ICE) Program provides dual enrollment opportunities for transition-aged students, 18 - 21, 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. Campus membership is encouraged through participation in campus-wide events and clubs.

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
