Spring Academy and Summer Academy
In Students' Words
"This program gave me multiple chances to retake the CUNY Assessment Test and to become a student at John Jay."
"I felt like the teachers actually cared and were not bothered going over things again if we didn't understand it."
"Everyone was supportive which motivated me to do my best."
"I loved the fact that we were able to work with our classmates and actually learn from each other."
Students who have been conditionally admitted to
John Jay because they have not passed one of the
CUNY Assessment Tests (CAT) may be eligible to
participate in the Spring or Summer Academy
programs. These tuition-free retest preparation
programs give students another chance to achieve
skill proficiency and start at John Jay in the fall.

SASP staff will contact you in about one week to confirm your registration. If you don't hear from us, email SASP@jjay.cuny.edu.
