The City College Academy for Professional Preparation (CCAPP) is the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) at City College. It is sponsored by the New York State Department of Education to support talented under-represented students pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and health-related fields, to address the critical shortage of these students in those disciplines. The CCAPP program provides participants with a supportive community of fellow students, faculty and staff that enriches their lives, promotes their academic success and prepares them for entry into professional careers and/or graduate programs. CCAPP serves students throughout their college careers.

Science Mentoring Program

Science Mentoring Program (SMP) under the Division of Science (DoS) functions as a mentor-leadership training program for a community of students who study science subjects or are on the STEM track, with or without healthcare as a focus.

SMP members are supported by a panel of experienced mentors who serve to demystify academia. Mentors introduce our members to university life and work alongside them in task-based activities. Each mentor has their own skill set, and mentees may interact with as many as they choose in individual sessions.

SMP prepares mentees to seek best academic outcomes. We expand their access to information and encourage both teamwork and leadership experience. All members have the opportunity to distinguish themselves through service to their peers.  SMP offers leadership goals reachable for every student, from freshman to senior, with support and training. SMP builds its identity out of the strong efforts and good intentions of the members who join. It is a unique endeavor.

Academic Support and Enrichment Activities:
  • New Freshmen Summer Program
  • Professional & Career Development
  • Referral to Research & Internships
  • Student to Student Mentoring
  • Problem Solving Instruction in Science
  • Undergraduate Tutoring & Workshops
  • Scholarships
