CUNY College Now

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Art and Design is offering students the opportunity to participate in “College Now” at any CUNY Campus location. Our College Now partner university is Hunter College, located ten blocks north of Art and Design on Park Avenue.

College Now is a collaboration between the City University of New York (CUNY) and the New York City Department of Education. The goal of this collaboration is to introduce high school students of varying skill levels to the rigors and rewards of higher education, primarily, the ability to earn college credit while still in high school. Hunter College frames the experience with formal orientations and support services specially designed for the high school level.

Classes are being held virtually. Course offerings will be available in November.

Please reach out to the College Office, for more information on how to apply.
