General Program Information
Eligible schools are NYC public schools (includes District 75, and District 79-Passages, Restart and Alternative Learning Centers). Eligible students are seventh grade students. D75 and D79 schools may bring additional grades. Unfortunately, charter schools, independent, and private schools are ineligible.
Each middle school is required to have a College Access for All middle school team, liaison or vendor that is responsible for the curriculum and visit scheduling. Determine who they are and contact them if interested in scheduling a visit.
Currently, fifteen undergraduate campuses are involved in the program.
- Manhattan: The City College of New York, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Borough of Manhattan Community College and Baruch College
- Bronx: Bronx Community College and Lehman College
- Brooklyn: Brooklyn College, Medgar Evers College, New York City College of Technology-City Tech, and Kingsborough Community College
- Queens: Queens College, York College, Queensborough Community College and LaGuardia Community College
- Staten Island: The College of Staten Island
The visit agenda varies by campus, but a typical visit includes a campus tour, lunch on campus, and an interactive activity. Students may participate in a STEM activity led by campus faculty, operate an aviation flight simulator, talk to the President of Student Government, or learn how to tie a nautical knot.
Scheduling A Visit
Step 1: Visit our registration site
Step 2: Choose your preferred campus and click on an available date.
Step 3: Complete the registration form, upload a student roster, and submit.
Step 4: You will receive a welcome email with additional instructions.
Please note that a scheduled visit is not a confirmation. Only the coordinator can confirm a visit with the middle school. If you did not receive a welcome email from the coordinator, please contact them.
It depends on the campus and the day you plan to visit, though we ask that you bring a minimum of 25 students. Please see the registration site for more information. D75 and D79 schools do not have a required minimum number of students.
A scheduled visit is not a confirmation. Only the coordinator can confirm a visit with the middle school. The coordinator will send a welcome email with information about the visit, itinerary, and additional information required for the visit. If you did not receive a welcome email, contact the campus coordinator.
Please contact the coordinator of the campus you would like to visit and ask about being placed on a waitlist. Most visit dates are added to the registration site in September and December.
If you have to cancel a scheduled visit, please contact the campus coordinator within two weeks of your scheduled visit. This allows other schools to register for that date. When a visit is cancelled within less than two weeks’ notice, all other scheduled visits at that campus will be forfeited.
