The College Now program offers qualified high school students the opportunity to enroll in a variety of activities including college-credit courses, college-preparatory courses and activities, and experiential-based summer programs. Access to campus facilities and cultural offerings are also offered to students. To take a college-credit class, for example, you’ll need to meet course enrollment requirements. Most 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: College credit offerings range from courses in the arts and humanities, social sciences, math, and technology. These consist of mainly freshman-level college courses and also include developmental reading, writing, and math courses. Course offerings 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 other ways students are engaged in the College Now experience.
