What is NYC College Line?
NYC College Line supports New Yorkers to prepare for, get in to and complete college by connecting them to New York City-based programs as well as useful web-based resources.
NYC College Line was created by Graduate NYC!, CUNY, the NYC Department of Education, and the Options Center of Goddard Riverside.
What is Graduate NYC!?
Graduate NYC! is a joint venture between CUNY and the NYC Department of Education to increase college readiness and completion among NYC students. Graduate NYC! is made possible with generous support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Graduate NYC! supports the City’s ambitious goal to double the number of NYC college graduates within 10 years. To learn more about Graduate NYC’s efforts across New York City, visit GradNYC.com
