Deadline for Proposal Submission: Monday, November 7, 2016

The City of New York has provided significant funding to CUNY to scale ASAP to 25,000 students by FY19. This major expansion of ASAP will take place across nine colleges: Borough of Manhattan Community College, Bronx Community College, Hostos Community College, Kingsborough Community College, LaGuardia Community College, Queensborough Community College, College of Staten Island, Medgar Evers College, and New York City College of Technology. A major mayoral priority for ASAP expansion is to increase the enrollment, retention, and graduation rates of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) students. Currently, STEM enrollment of entering ASAP students stands at 31% with the goal of reaching and maintaining a program-wide STEM enrollment of at least 35% by academic year 2018/19. ASAP further aims to retain and graduate STEM majors at current program-wide benchmarks (80% one-year retention rate and 50% three-year graduation rate). For the purposes of this RFP, please find attached a list of STEM majors served by ASAP.
