It is imperative that high school juniors considering early admission are academically and socially prepared for the challenges of college. You must discuss this with your high school guidance counselor, receive written approval from the guidance counselor or high school principal, and receive satisfactory scores on ability-to-benefit testing. There is a formal process for students to be considered. Every early application is reviewed by the Director of Admissions who makes the final admission decision. High school students who enroll at CCC while completing requirements for their high school diploma are not eligible for any federal aid, including student loans. They may apply for New York State TAP awards if they enroll full-time and successfully complete ability-to-benefit testing.
