A Program for High School Students Who are Interested in Beginning Their College Career Now

Welcome to College Now at Queensborough Community College. College Now is a collaborative program between the City University of New York and the New York City Department of Education. College Now offers high school students an opportunity to experience college life by making it possible for them to take college preparatory and college-level courses while still in high school. Students attend orientations and special events on campus thereby expanding their horizons in regard to post-secondary education.

College Now at Queensborough Community College makes it possible for qualified high school students to participate in either college preparatory classes or college-level courses given at their high schools or, in some cases, on the campus of Queensborough Community College. These courses are offered tuition free to the students and are held before or after the regular school day. Moreover, college credit enrolled students, once they get a QCC ID card for that semester, will have access to Queensborough Community College's facilities, including the Kurt R. Schmeller Library Building, the Academic Computing Center, and the fitness facilities. We're proud to report that over 3,000 high school students participated in the College Now Program at Queensborough Community College during the 2021-2022 school year.
