Tri-C Will Test CUNY Accelerated Degree Program
March 13, 2015
Cuyahoga Community College will be one of three community colleges in Ohio to test an accelerated degree program based on a model created at City University of New York.
"The [CUNY] program provides students with three years of wraparound academic and financial assistance, including free textbooks, a Metro Card for public transportation and a tuition waiver that covers any gap between a student’s financial aid and tuition fees," reports the American Association of Community Colleges' 21st Century Center.
Lorain County Community College and Cincinnatti State Technical and Community College will also test the program.
