Welcome

The College Discovery Program (CD) was established in 1964 as a Special Program in The City University of New York (CUNY). It was launched by CUNY and the Governor as a result of persistent efforts and demands made by a few concerned New York politicians, African-American legislators and Puerto Rican legislators of New York State. College Discovery was established to provide access to higher education to those eligible because of financial and/or prior educational circumstances.

Since the inception of The College Discovery Program, thousands of students have graduated with associate degrees. Many have transferred to senior colleges to complete advanced degrees. Our students have distinguished themselves in such fields as law, politics, journalism, health services, the arts, social work, business, and education.
