College Now is CUNY’s largest school-college partnership with the New York City secondary public school system. The program offers dual enrollment and college-readiness programs in more than 400 NYC high schools and enrolls over 20,000 students annually. In all, there are seventeen campus-based College Now programs which are overseen by a central office. Although the program varies from school to school and campus to campus, they are similar in terms of overall structure, implementation and goals.
HSMSE students have an opportunity to individually sign up for various courses offered by College Now. All coursework and follow-up is completely the responsibility of the enrolled student, and parents are encouraged to oversee student planning and research of courses offered.
