Become a College Now Partner School

In 2016 – 2017, there were more than 20,000 students enrolled in college credit courses, with another 8,000 students enrolled in various College Now pre-college courses and workshops.   The program continues to receive requests both to create new partnerships and to expand existing partnerships.  In order to offer college courses and activities to as many qualified students as possible, it is important that we take stock of all our partnerships to determine whether we can improve upon our work on behalf of New York City public high school students.


Over the past several year, we have learned a great deal about effective partnerships.  We rely on a deep and mutual commitment from the partner high school as well as the campus College Now program to ensure success for all – whether that be the students, faculty, high school, or college campus.  We have also been developing the program’s research and evaluation capacity, and as a result, will often share data with school administrators about the benefits of student participation in the College Now program.


All College Now partner requests are vetted through the programs Central Office staff.  The school’s geographic location and proximity to a College Now campus will play an important role in determining the ‘right’ College Now partner for your school.  Additional factors such as a school’s theme as well as the maintenance of University-wide goals and priorities are also taken into consideration.  New partnerships requests are reviewed twice a year: March 1st for fall enrollment and October 1st for spring enrollment.
