College Now


College Now is a college transition and dual enrollment program in collaboration with the City University of New York (CUNY) and the New York City Department of Education (DOE). College Now prepares NYC public high school 11th and 12th graders for college success through over 14 CUNY three- credit pathway course offerings per semester from across all departments. The Hostos College Now program also offers a one credit First Year Seminar course to high achieving second semester sophomore students.

Hostos College Now is partnered with 60 South Bronx high schools and enrolls about 1000 students each year. Hostos College Now cultivates a realistic college culture by offering all courses on the Hostos Community College campus where students are taught by Hostos faculty, and have access to computer labs, HALC, the library, dining, and other services. The goal of Hostos College Now is to motivate and prepare students for the realities of higher education and beyond through college courses, skill-building workshops, and summer programs. Students have the opportunity to earn up to 16 college credits through Hostos College Now before their high school graduation. The Hostos College Now program also hosts a number of pre-college and college credit summer programs.
