Collegiate Science & Technology Entry Program (CSTEP)

Alumni College Center 204

The Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) is jointly sponsored by Mohawk Valley Community College and the New York State Education Department. CSTEP is designed to foster academic excellence for underrepresented or economically disadvantaged full-time college students majoring in the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) or licensed professions (e.g. allied health, social work, etc.)

CSTEP, which is a New York State grant-funded program, offers many services and programs to aid students in achieving their academic and professional goals. Some activities presented by CSTEP include academic and professional workshops, field trips to other colleges and businesses, internship and research opportunities, mentoring, tutoring, transfer and career exploration. Students with qualifying GPAs are also eligible to earn book/tuition assistance and utilize the laptop loan program.
