Why should you attend?
This is a way to "jump-start" your education by earning college credits as well as learning more about NYIT.

- Motivation, persistence, and goal setting
- Cooperative learning through group and class team work
- Socialization to the college environment
Costs: The total cost for two courses (seven credits maximum) is $3,000.
