The semester is now well underway, as we swing into the second week of classes. If you haven't already, you may want to take a look at the academic calendar for the fall, so that you will know the schedule that your City Tech student will follow. You can find it at http://www.citytech.cuny.edu/files/academics/fallcal_2010.pdf .
Talk to your City Tech student. If he or she is experiencing academic difficulties or feel that they are in the wrong classes, this is a time to visit one of the dedicated staff in our Counseling Center. A counselor can also be helpful in exploring whether a student is in the right major.
As you probably already know, colleges across the state are still coming to grips with the enormous changes that the New York State legislature made in the TAP program. We will continue to communicate about this as the situation is clarified. Unfortunately, we will all have to be patient a little longer, until the New York State Regents come to closure on TAP guidelines.
