CUNY START (College Transition Initiative)
Have you been accepted into LaGuardia Community College?
Do you need to pass 1 or more of the CUNY placement exams?
Get the academic support you need to pass the CUNY placement exams and succeed in college!
CUNY START is an intensive 18-week program that offers both part time and full time classes in academic reading, writing and math for students who have not passed 1 or more of the CUNY placement exams. The program--which costs only $75, including books--allows you to save your financial aid for credit courses and offers advisement on college and career planning.
During Spring 2015 CUNY Start will be part of the CUNY Start and Other Strategies Study. The purpose of this study is to learn about the best ways to help students succeed in college. Space is limited, so eligible students will be chosen by a lottery system and will have a 70-80% chance of being selected for CUNY Start. If you are eligible and agree to participate in the study you get a $20 gift card!
