College Now, a free college transition and dual enrollment program, is a major partnership between CUNY and NYCDOE enlisting 18 colleges and over 420 NYC public high schools in its mission to help students successfully transition to college. The program provides college credit courses aligned with the first-year study at CUNY, pre-college courses which increase students’ academic readiness for college without a need for remediation, college awareness courses and activities, full day summer programs and access to CUNY campus facilities and events.

The goal of College Now, much like many dual enrollment programs, is to help students meet high school graduation requirements and prepare for success in college, both academically and socially. In addition, program administrators have designed program activities with the goal of enhancing performance on Regents and CUNY placement exams so that students will be able to enroll in college without the need for remediation http://www2.cuny.edu/academics/school-college-partnerships/college-now//.
