What is remediation?

Did you know that 1 in 4 college students have to take remedial classes? Did you know that remedial classes repeat high school material but cost more time and financial aid than college courses? Did you know that students in remediation cannot take the courses they need to graduation until they are remediation free?  The new Excelsior Scholarship for graduating seniors who are eligible financially may not be able to take advantage because of the need for remediation.  Students who are remedial free generally have enough grant money to see them through to graduation versus students with remedial who cannot begin their classes toward their degrees.

BTECH

As part of Queensborough Community College’s commitment to educate youth and develop the next generation of STEM leadership, BTECH was created as a public-private partnership with the New York City Department of Education, multinational software corporation, SAP, and the Early College Initiative at CUNY. Based on the IBM P-Tech model, BTECH is an early college high school where students are dual-enrolled in high school and college at the same time for up to six years. This program model increases the opportunity for students to earn their high school diploma and associates degree; free of charge, at Queensborough Community College. It also allows students who are academically proficient to further advance. Early college high schools are one solution to the STEM field’s growing need for experienced professionals.

Students attending the Business Technology Early College High School (BTECH) will learn how to help the world run better by using technology to solve everyday problems. Students will become expert readers, writers, and critical thinkers with the technical skills necessary to succeed in our modern information-based global economy. During their six years at BTECH, hands-on job training in the form of apprenticeships or internships will be made available to every student through SAP (an international enterprise software development company) and their partners. Upon graduation, students will have the knowledge, skills, work experience, and technical education they need to be competitive candidates for employment and four-year degree programs.

College Now

College Now is an educational program that offers high school students college preparatory and college-level courses. High school students will be identified and recommended by their College Now high school liaison, teachers, and/ or other personnel. Based on their Regents grades and SAT scores students will be informed of their eligibility for various College Now courses. Beginning in the freshman year in high school and throughout the senior year, students will participate in foundation courses (non-credit skills courses) or college-level courses given at their high schools, or, in some cases, on the college campus. These courses are offered tuition free to the students and are held before or after the regular school day, and on Saturdays. Students who are initially required to take college foundation courses will have the opportunity to progress to credit-bearing classes. Students taking College Now courses may receive ID cards and use the facilities of QCC. All classes taken through the College Now program will be documented on an official transcript on file at Queensborough Community College and in the Central Office of the City University of New York. (See “College Now Courses” in the Academic Departments & Course Descriptions section for more course information). For more information, visit http://www.qcc.cuny.edu/collegeNow/index.html
