“CUNY ASAP is designed to provide NewYork City with the educated workforce that it must have in order to stay competitive with cities around the world.”
—Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg

Fall 2013 Recruitment:
We have a limited number of seats for the Fall 2012(Fall 2013)cohort. All students interested in ASAP must first apply to Kingsborough Community College and take the placement exam. In order to be eligible students must meet particular residency, credit, developmental course criteria and financial criteria. New students who take the placement exam and meet the academic criteria will be contacted by the ASAP office and be invited to an ASAP information session. KCC ASAP accepts students with any combination of the highest developmental writing score and math needs based on their CUNY Assessment Test (CAT) scores as long as he/she has passed the reading portion of the test (CAT-R). 

The City University of New York’s
Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) is an exciting program that enables eligible students to earn their Associate Degree as quickly as possible. The ASAP Program at Kingsborough Community College draws on the best resources of the College to prepare our students to complete their Associate Degree and transfer to a four-year college/university of their choice.
Students are required to complete at least 12 (15)credits each semester and commit to earning their Associate’s degree within two to three years. The hallmarks of the Kingsborough ASAP program include: 

Tuition Waiver
ASAP students eligible for federal and/or state financial aid receive additional ASAP funding to pay the balance of tuition and school fees. 

Voucher for Textbooks
Each semester ASAP students receive a textbook voucher each semester. 

Monthly Metrocards
Each month ASAP students are eligible to receive a monthly metro card to travel to and from campus. 

Connected Community
All ASAP students are required to attend an intense four day summer institute at the end of August/beginning September. The institute connected students with their ASAP peers and advisors, introduced them to campus and student life. During the school year, ASAP students are organized in cohorts of no more than twenty-seven students and are taught by top faculty.   

Block Schedule
During the first year we provided ASAP students a range of scheduling options designed to help them balance college life with the demands of work and family. ASAP students choose from a variety of convenient morning, afternoon, evening class schedules. 

Academic Support
ASAP students are assigned to an advisor. The role of an advisor is to be a facilitator, coach, teacher, counselor and mentor. The advisors at Kingsborough Community College provide academic advisement to motivate and maximize the development and growth of ASAP students. They assist students in gaining knowledge and awareness of their strengths and weaknesses as well as the skills that are necessary for academic and personal success. Specifically, the advisors provide timely & accurate information regarding curriculum & graduation requirements, assess student progress to identify at-risk students to refer to appropriate campus resources and aid students to develop an academic plan with appropriate course sequencing in all majors, and transfer options to baccalaureate programs at senior colleges.
Throughout the academic year, skilled tutors work with ASAP students to give them an academic boost outside the classroom. Students taking a developmental class are expected to take supplemental class to assist them in passing their developmental class. 

Career Counseling
Our Job Developer works with ASAP students to develop their resume, strengthen interview skills, explore career interests and coordinate campus job opportunities. 

Laptop Computer Preferred Borrowing Privileges
ASAP students have the privilege to participate in a lap top loaner program which enables them to borrow a lap top for three days. They can take the lap top off campus. This service supports ASAP students who have limited computer access off campus.
