College Partnerships

Today's CTE provides rigorous academic experience paired with and highly technical sequence of study putting students on a college and career pathway. Among students who came to CUNY as freshmen in 2010, more than 50 percent of those who completed a bachelor's degree within four years had earned college credit prior to entering CUNY. Robust CTE programming partnerships with colleges, codified by an articulation agreement, provide a range of student benefits such as advanced standing, early college credit, and preferential placement. 

Our collaboration with City University of New York, State University of New York and other post-secondary institutions prepares CTE students in building skills and accumulating college credit to support their successful transitions into higher education.
