Rationale for the Plan

CLIP is an option for students who have been accepted to CUNY and need to improve their academic English skills before taking college courses. The purpose is to improve the students' placement and enhance their chances of success once they enroll in credit-bearing classes. All the student outcomes (test results) are reported to CUNY-CLIP Central Office.
