  • Improve your scores on the CUNY Assessment Tests
  • Be better prepared for the challenges of college-level academic work
  • Spend only $75 for the entire semester, including textbooks
  • Save your limited financial aid dollars for college credit classes
  • Have full access to campus resources – academic and career counseling, libraries, and athletic facilities
