Welcome to College Now at Hunter
College Now is a collaboration between the City University of New York (CUNY) and the New York City Department of Education that prepares public high school students for successful academic performance in college.
Hunter’s College Now program focuses on courses for college or high school credit and other enrichment activities in the humanities, arts, social sciences, sciences and mathematics, all taught by our own full-time or adjunct faculty. Our mission is to introduce high school students of varying skill levels to the rigors and rewards of higher education by connecting them to high-quality scholarship and instruction. All students participate for free.
To cultivate the college experience, we hold class on our campus, where students may use our libraries, computer labs, tutorial centers, and dining facilities. We frame the college experience with formal orientations and support services specially designed for the high school level.
Each year, more than 2,000 students from NYC public high schools attend one or more Hunter College Now activities.
