College Now Courses and Activities
The College Now program offers qualified high school students opportunties to enroll in a variety of activities including college-credit courses, college-preparatory courses and activities, experiential-based summer programs, and access to campus facilities and cultural offerings. To take a college-credit class, for example, you’ll need to meet course-enrollment requirements. Most of the College Now activities are available for students in the 11th or 12th grade, but there are some preparatory activities available for 10th graders. In most cases, classes and events take place before or after school or, in some cases, on the weekend.
- College-credit Courses: The college credit offerings range from courses in the arts and humanities to the social sciences to math and technology. Courses are primarily introductory-level courses and vary from campus to campus.
- Pre-college Courses: A variety of pre-college courses are available for students not yet ready to take college-credit courses and some are offered for high school credit. These activities were jointly developed by college faculty and high school teachers and focus on developing students’ academic skills.
- Workshops and Other Activities: College preparatory workshops, arts and music workshops, meetings with admissions and guidance counselors, use of college libraries and facilities are just some ways College Now engages students in the college experience.
