College Now is a collaborative program of the City University of New York (CUNY) and the New York City Department of Education, which aims to promote college awareness and strengthens academic preparation in order to expand students’ capacity for a successful transition to college.
The program is designed to help high school students with their transition to college by exposing them to college level work and college life. High school students are given the opportunity to accrue college credits through an array of course offerings and are provided with classes designed to improve their reading, writing, and math skills.
College Now offers many activities and opportunities:
- Academic courses (both for high school and college credit).
- Campus-based tours and cultural events, such as theater or dance performances.
- Exclusive scholarship offers.
The College Now Program at Medgar Evers College offers a wide range of courses from life sciences to liberal arts. These courses include pre-college course and college credit courses. Approximately 250 students apply each semester. Students come from all cross the central Brooklyn area and even across all five boroughs. Fall semester applications go out in April-May and spring semester applications go out in October.
