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 and Groups
  • Monthly Social Events

The fee for the 2018-2019 academic year is $6,600. 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 $6,600 fee.

Applications for the 2018-2019 academic year are open! Please see the Prospective Students page for more information. Applications are due Saturday, March 31st, 2018 by midnight. Selected applicants will be invited for an interview between April 4th – 13th, 2018.  Final MASI decisions will be made by April 19th, 2018.
