CUNY’s Accelerated Study in Associate Programs "addresses money issues by covering tuition that’s not paid for by federal and state grants, as well as paying for public transit and giving students free use of textbooks, saving them upward of $900 a year. To help balance the demands of college with work, life and family obligations, students take their classes in a consolidated course schedule (morning, afternoon or evening)." In addition, "biweekly seminars and one-on-one advising" is also used to increase graduation rates.
