Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program
The Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program, also known as CSTEP, is an academic enrichment and professional development program. Students in CSTEP are scholars who are focused and committed to reaching their professional goals. CSTEP Scholars are pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, health or licensed professions.
CSTEP is nationally recognized by the United States Department of Education Office of Vocational and Adult Education as one of the nation's top eight programs.
From a pre-freshmen summer bridge program, to conducting scientific research at national laboratories, to participating in local internships and presenting at conferences, CSTEP scholars become strong and highly competitive individuals.
CSTEP Scholars are successful because they take advantage of the resources available to them including:
- individualized advisement sessions,
- campus visits,
- utilizing the resources at the Natural Science Education Center
- and much more!
CSTEP Scholars obtain jobs in their intended careers upon graduating from MCC or successfully transfer to a four-year college or university.
CSTEP is funded by the New York State Education Department.
