College Now @ Hostos Community College

Hostos College Focus Summer Program

@ Hostos Community College

Join us this summer and you can qualify for College before you graduate high school!

Did you know that you need a score of 75+ on the ELA Regents exam to take most college-credit humanities courses or an 80+ on the Algebra Regents to take a college credit math course?  OR that you need both to qualify for a four-year CUNY college?  If you have not achieved either of these scores, you should take advantage of the College Focus Summer Program @ Hostos Community College.  Passing the tests you’ll prepare for in this free summer program will exempt you from remedial courses at CUNY and qualify you for college credit courses in your senior year of high school.  Participants will receive a Student Metrocard, snacks and lunch, and an Application Fee Waiver for CUNY’s online application valued at $65!   To apply, print and complete an application.  Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until classes are full.
