TAS Pipeline to College

The TAS Pipeline combines courses, summer experiences, workshops, and other social activities to build a community of TASs prepared to enter and succeed in college.

The primary goal of the Pipeline is to provide a clear set of guidelines for students to ensure that they have fulfilled all of CUNY’s remedial requirements and have some experience with college level work.
