Fall classes start in September and Spring classes start in March. Each session runs for 18 weeks. We offer full-time and part-time programs: Full-time day program reading, writing and math: College-bound high school graduates and high school equivalency diploma recipients who have been admitted to CUNY and taken the CUNY Assessment Tests but have not yet registered for classes.
CUNY Start students have all demonstrated a need for skills development in reading, writing or in math. For the full-time program, CUNY tests have indicated a need for remediation in both math and writing.
Why do I need remedial classes? The advantage of CUNY Start is that study is intensive — 12 or 25 hours a week — and is designed for high school graduates and high school equivalency diploma recipients, adults who have been out of school, and anyone who wants to make a strong start in college.
You will begin your CUNY college courses the next semester. As a result of college transition, you are likely to reduce the time you spend in college remedial courses and make a stronger transition to college credit courses.
You will start credit courses better prepared to succeed and graduate.
College transition students do not use financial aid for CUNY Start and instead save their financial aid for credit courses. Students who take several college remedial courses and use their financial aid to pay for them may run out of financial aid before completing their degree.
College transition is a special effort by CUNY to help make the dream of a CUNY degree feasible for high school graduates and high school equivalency diploma recipients, and anyone who wishes to make a strong start in college.As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
