The Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) can help you earn your Associate in Arts or Associate in Applied Science degree in no more than three years. ASAP helps you dare to do more by providing eligible students with the academic, social, and financial support they need to graduate.

ASAP at LaGuardia Community College began in Fall 2007 and is sponsored by the Office of the Mayor's Center for Economic Opportunity (CEO). The benefits of ASAP include consolidated block schedules, small class sizes, required full-time study and comprehensive advisement and career development services. Financial incentives include tuition waivers for financial aid eligible students and free use of textbooks and monthly MetroCards. Additional resources include:

  • Academic Advisors meet in one-to-one appointments with you to provide academic, programmatic and personal advisement, as well as referrals to resources on campus.
  • The ASAP Career Employment Specialist assists you by providing career counseling, job placement, career related field trips and workshops such as resume development and interview preparation.
  • Co-Curricular and Social Enrichment Activities sponsored by ASAP, including tutoring and academic enrichment workshops in Math and English Prep, Time Management, and Reading & Writing Skills, are held throughout the year and promote academic developmental success.

Student acceptance is for a period of no more than three continuous years. The goal of the program is to graduate with an Associate’s degree within this period. All ASAP students enroll in a full-time (12 credits minimum) day or evening block learning community offered for Liberal Arts or Business Administration majors.
