College Now At Kingsborough Community College
Our purpose is to prepare students, especially middle-range or moderate achievers, to successfully negotiate the educational and emotional changes that occur during their transformation into a college freshmen.
The program offers rigorous freshman-level college credit and developmental coursework without cost to high school juniors and seniors to:
1) Increase their awareness of the demands of higher education
2) Prepare students for postsecondary education without remediation
3) Facilitate a smooth transition between educational systems
4) Accumulate college credits
Among the college-level offerings are courses in behavioral & social sciences, business, communications, humanities, political science, science, statistics, and student development. College preparatory courses are in English, reading/writing, and mathematics.
Classes meet either before or after the regular school day, depending on the individual high school. Students may earn up to 16 college credits while in the program. Course offerings are taught by high school faculty who have met all requirements to be hired as an adjunct instructor in the appropriate department at Kingsborough Community College. Students may also participate in freshman orientation courses designed to help them make a smooth transition from high school to college. Student development courses are offered in the summer at the college and throughout the year at various high schools. They are taught by college counselors and cover topics such as choosing a major, study techniques, time and money management, career planning and goal settings. Upon successful completion of coursework students will have an official college transcript from Kingsborough Community College.
