College Discovery Programs (CD) were created in 1965 at the City University of New York to assist students who have the potential to succeed in college but lack the educational foundation and economic resources necessary to pursue a degree. Our mission is to facilitate our students' success at LaGuardia Community College and to enhance their social mobility and vocational opportunities.
To help students achieve these goals, College Discovery offers a variety of support services including counseling, new student seminars, tutoring, supplemental instruction, and financial aid. Many College Discovery students who graduate from LaGuardia begin successful careers or continue their education at four-year colleges.
The College Discovery Program at LaGuardia, the “World's Community College,” reflects the diversity of the entire college community. The counselors, staff, and students come from different neighborhoods of New York City as well as different countries of the world, each bringing his or her own unique perspective and ideas to the learning experience.
