Additionally, our courses are taught by Baruch faculty and take place at the College.

Committment: Enrollment in a college course is a serious commitment. While we understand sudents are still in high school when participating in our program we expect them to act and behave as college students. 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.

Campus Resources: Students who enroll in a Baruch College course are given a Baruch College ID card, acess to Blackboard and a 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 Student Academic Consulting Center (tutoring).

Process: After applying and being accepted into our program 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!
