These exciting opportunities provides advanced and challenging coursework outside of the high school curriculum, prepares students for the demands of college-level work and gives students a headstart in college.

Enrollment in a college course is a serious commitment. All college courses become a part of a student's CUNY transcript. If a student attends Baruch College as an undergraduate, the grade earned in a Baruch College course will be included in the college GPA.

Students who enroll in a Baruch College course are given a Baruch College ID card and a Blackboard and Webmail account. Students have access to all of the facilities at the college, including the William and Anita Newman Library, Baruch College Technology Center and Athletics and Recreation Complex.

All accepted students will be required to attend a mandatory orientation and maintain satisfactory attendance and academic performance.

The College Now program gives students a firsthand glimpse of what is needed to succeed in a college course. We look forward to seeing you at Baruch College!
