ASAP is designed to help motivated community college students earn their degrees as quickly as possible, with a goal of graduating at least 50% of students within three years. Due to a variety of stresses and responsibilities, too many community college students are not able to complete their Associate degrees in a timely manner, if at all. ASAP helps to eliminate these stresses by providing select community college students with the academic, social, and financial support they need to graduate with an Associate in Arts or Associate in Applied Science degree in no more than three years. ASAP was launched in fall 2007, and is supported by the City and State of New York, the Robin Hood Foundation, and the Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation. ASAP is committed to graduating at least 50% of students within three years through provision of comprehensive support services and financial resources.
