Non-traditional Students in the Technologies

Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP)

The Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) is a college-based initiative targeted at the racially/ethnically under-represented and/or economically less advantaged students currently matriculating in post-secondary institutions. CSTEP provides a comprehensive array of academic and support services aimed at improving and enhancing program students grasp of mathematical and scientific concepts and methodologies, expanding their reading, writing, thinking, and computational skills, increasing their awareness of careers in scientific, technical, health, or licensed professions, and enhancing their ability to successfully achieve their desired outcomes. The New York State Department of Education funds this Program.
