What will I learn in the Immersion Program?
Students in the Immersion Program study reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills in English. The goal of the Immersion Program is to help students get the skills they need to succeed in college. Students do assignments in class, research projects, and work in the computer lab. Students also learn more about college and get help with financial aid and how to continue their education in college.

How can I qualify for the Immersion Program?
You must be admitted into one of the CUNY colleges, and you must take the CUNY placement tests. Taking classes in the Immersion Program is based on these test scores. A college counselor can also suggest that you take classes in the Immersion Program.
