Mason Autism Support Initiative (MASI)
The Mason Autism Support Initiative (MASI) is a comprehensive, fee-based program that provides additional intensive support services to students on the Autism Spectrum beyond typical higher education accommodations. MASI uses a team-based approach to assist students in achieving their goals in college. An individualized plan of support is created for each student in MASI at the beginning of each academic year.
Through this program, students have access to
- Peer Mentor (undergraduate student)
- Learning Strategist (graduate student or professional)
- Skill-building Classes
- Monthly Social Events
The fee for the 2020-2021 academic year is $6,800, pending early spring budget review and approval. The rate may be lower, but will not be higher. Once a student is accepted into MASI, they must pay a $400 deposit to secure their space in the program. The $400 deposit is applied to the overall fee.
The application window for the 2020-2021 academic year is now open. Please see the Prospective Students page for more information.
