The General Education curriculum is a one‐year program leading to a certificate of completion. This program is useful for students who wish to strengthen their academic backgrounds before embarking on programs of study that lead to an Associate’s degree. It also offers the student with undecided educational goals the opportunity for a year of broadly-based study and exploration.
Students without a GED or high school diploma are required to enroll in the General Education Certificate Program before enrolling in an Associate’s degree or other certificate program.
The General Education certificate provides an avenue to meet the qualifications to apply for a New York State High School Equivalency Diploma based on Earned College Credit.
