CUNY Start  

CUNY Start is a low-cost 16 week program for CUNY community college students who may be required to enroll in a remedial course(s) in Reading/Writing and/or in Math. In the CUNY Start Program, students enroll in either Precollege Math or Academic Reading/Writing, and both tracks include College Advisement.

CUNY Start classes help students improve as readers and writers or as mathematical thinkers. The classes also help students to improve their study skills. At the end of the course, CUNY Start students will re-take any placement exams in which they have studied that they still need to pass.

Students remain eligible for further remediation at their college as needed, however the ultimate goal of the program is to help students entering CUNY with reduced or eliminated remedial needs.
