Career Pathways Program

Looking to earn your high school equivalency?  Why not take it one step further?

With Monroe's Career Pathways program, you'll get your high school equivalency while earning a college degree. And you'll graduate with the targeted skills that employers want.

Once accepted into Monroe’s Career Pathway program, you’ll be taking college classes immediately. Over the course of the first year, you will earn the 24 credits that New York State requires for your high school equivalency. Then, you’ll be just two semesters away from earning your associate degree. This means you can earn your high school equivalency and associate degree in less than two years. 

On-Campus Information Sessions are held every Thursday at 11:00 AM at our Bronx Campus. Register Now

How it Works

After you earn 24 credits, you’re eligible to earn your high school equivalency. The next 36 credits you earn lead toward your associate degree. You can do this in just five semesters – less than two years!

It’s the best of both worlds. You get your GED and your associate degree at the same time.
