What is ASAP?

ASAP is designed to help motivated students earn their Associate degree as quickly as possible, with a goal of graduating at least 50% of students within three years or less (it generally takes students an average of five years to graduate).  It is a structured program that provides a comprehensive array of supports and services that help students successfully graduate, and transfer into one of MEC’s Bachelor degree programs or pursue a career. 

Key ASAP features include a consolidated block schedule, cohorts by major, small class size, required full-time study and comprehensive advisement and career development services. Financial incentives include tuition waivers for financial aid eligible students and free use of textbooks and monthly MetroCards for all students.  Classes are scheduled in morning and afternoon blocks, which allow students to work part-time.
