Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) assists students in earning associate degrees within three years by providing a range of financial, academic, and personal supports including comprehensive and personalized advisement, career counseling, tutoring, waivers for tuition and mandatory fees, MTA MetroCards, and additional financial assistance to defray the cost of textbooks.

The ASAP team uses a holistic approach to advisement. We develop professional relationships with students to assist them in defining and achieving their academic, personal and career goals.
