What is College Now?
College Now, a free college transition and dual enrollment program, is a major partnership between CUNY and NYCDOE enlisting 18 colleges and over 420 NYC public high schools in its mission to help students successfully transition to college. The program provides college credit courses aligned with first year study at CUNY, pre-college courses which increase students’ academic readiness for college without a need for remediation, college awareness courses and activities, full day summer programs and access to CUNY campus facilities and events.
The goal of College Now, much like many dual enrollment programs, is to help students meet high school graduation requirements and prepare for success in college, both academically and socially. In addition, program administrators have designed program activities with the goal of enhancing performance on Regents and CUNY placement exams so that students will be able to enroll in college without the need for remediation.
College Now Activities
The College Now program offers qualified high school students opportunities to enroll in a variety of activities including college-credit courses, college-preparatory courses and activities, and experiential-based summer programs. Access to campus facilities and cultural offerings are also offered to students. Most College Now activities are available for students in the 11th or 12th grade, but there are some preparatory activities available for 10th graders. In most cases, classes and events take place before or after school or, in some cases, on the weekend.
