There's no debate. ASAP works!

The White House

In January 2015, President Obama recognized the value of CUNY’s ASAP program as a critical component of student achievement for both raising graduation rates and successfully transferring students to four-year degree programs. A Whitehouse press release cited ASAP’s services which include “waiv[ing] tuition, help[ing] students pay for books and transit costs, and provid[ing] academic advising and supportive scheduling programs.”

The New York Times reinforced President Obama’s message by citing positive student graduation statistics for those enrolled in ASAP program.

CUNY Chancellor James B. Milliken tells HuffPost Live how effective CUNY ASAP has been and why it deserves the national attention it has received.
