Funded by monies from the city and the Center for Economic Opportunity (CEO), Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) is an exciting program designed to help highly motivated students from low-income families earn their associate degree as quickly as possible. Thanks to the program’s enhanced academic structure and financial support, highly motivated students can graduate from Bronx Community College within two to three years. (It takes community college students an average of five to six years to graduate with an associate degree.)

ASAP provides students with a variety of services and opportunities: comprehensive and personalized advisement, career development, part-time job placement, internships, transfer counseling, academic support and social and cultural activities. Tuition assistance is available for students who qualify. In addition, students receive assistance with textbooks and transportation. ASAP students attend BCC full-time. Classes are scheduled in morning and afternoon blocks, which allow students to work part-time.
