Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP)

What is ASAP?

ASAP is a comprehensive program designed to help motivated community college students earn their degrees as quickly as possible, with a goal of graduating at least 50% of students within three years. ASAP is supported by the City and State of New York, the Robin Hood Foundation, and the Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation.


Why Join ASAP? 

Due to a variety of stressors and responsibilities, many community college students are not able to complete their associate degrees in a timely manner. ASAP helps to eliminate these stressors by providing select community college students with the academic, social and financial support they need to graduate with an Associate in Arts or Associate in Applied Science degree in no more than three years.
