Cayuga Helps High School Students Plan for 3-Year Bachelor's Degree

DATE: 01-20-2006

With its new Fast Forward liberal arts sequence, Cayuga Community College is helping high school achievers save time and money on a future bachelor's degree. By planning ahead, students can attain junior standing at a four-year college after just one year of attendance at Cayuga. How it works: Students must first complete five college-level courses while in high school. They can do so in their high school classrooms through the college's Cayuga Advantage program. High school diploma in hand, they then enroll full-time for one year in Cayuga's liberal arts degree program, and pick up two or three more courses during the college's January and summer breaks. With this sequence completed, the associate's degree in liberal arts is conferred after just one year at Cayuga. If students have coordinated their course selection with their intended transfer school, they can then enroll in a four-year college or university as a junior. The Fast Forward sequence makes the goal of a bachelor's degree, career entry or grad school a reality not only sooner, but at far less expense for tuition, room and board. For any high school student who's a quick study, Fast Forward offers an express lane to the dream of college commencement. Details are available from the Cayuga Community College admissions office at 315-255-1743.
