The Community Integration through Co-operative Education (CICE) program is a two year certificate program designed for adults with developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities, acquired brain injuries or other significant learning challenges who wish to further their education/vocational training in a community college setting.

As a student, you will have the opportunity to complete an individualized program of study made up of courses from an area of concentration selected from St. Lawrence College's program offerings. Your choice may be dependent on seat availability and program suitability. Course work will provide you with opportunities to develop and enhance your academic skills. Through field placement experiences arranged by CICE program staff, you will develop or refine your abilities in a number of potential work environments. Students can expect to be visited on their placements by our Faculty Advisors periodically throughout each semester.

You will receive support such as curriculum modification, note taking, tutoring, and other related academic services as needed. Upon successful completion of all courses and the field placement requirements, you will graduate with an Ontario College Certificate in CICE. Students will receive course summaries from each successfully completed course.

This program is not open to International students.
