Adults Returning to the Classroom

Adults Returning to the Classroom (ARC)

The College of Staten Island Supports returning and non-traditional students and makes it possible for you to complete your degree.

Whether gaining workplace skills, expanding employment opportunities, or just for personal growth, a CSI education can be the means to achieve your goals.

CSI's administration of this service is supportive, understanding and flexible, so you'll be able to reach your goals in a timely manner that works for you.

  • Evaluation of prior education
  • Possible life experience credits
  • Priority registration
  • Flexible day and evening sessions
  • Alternative locations at Willowbrook and St. George

All of our service areas can make it easy for you to take the first step toward a college degree. From pre-admissions counseling through graduation, our academic support, advisement, career and financial services offer guidance for adult students.
