After a year of virtual programming, College Connections sessions will be offered in a hybrid model this fall, with limited in-person sessions. 

Middle School Meets NYU

College Connections offers an engaging information session that exposes middle school students (5th-8th grade) to the landscape of higher education. During this session students will learn about why college matters, the college application process, tips for making college affordable, and things to consider when deciding which college or university is the right fit. 

College Connections sessions are available to middle schools and community-based organizations across the U.S. College Connections Virtual Sessions are offered as large and small group sessions.

Small group sessions accommodate 15-35 students and require at least one adult from your school or organization to participate. Small group sessions are interactive, seminar-style presentations.

Large group sessions accommodate groups of 35 students or more. We require at least one adult per 40 students in attendance to participate in large group sessions. Large group sessions are lecture-style presentations with a Q&A session that allows participants to ask questions of the presenters.

Starting in Fall 2022, College Connections will be offering limited in-person sessions. Students will be guided on a campus tour and will participate in an interactive presentation similar to the virtual presentations. 

These limited in-person sessions will be offered once a month on Tuesdays beginning at 11 am EST, and are only open to NYC schools and community based organizations. Students are required to comply with COVID-19 protocols set out by the University. For more information, please follow our latest COVID-19 updates. 

Due to high demand, we recommend submitting a request at least 4 weeks in advance of your requested session. 

Based on requests received, staff reserve the right to deny requests and/or offer alternative dates that can accommodate your capacity. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at

Cancellation Policy: Excluding emergency situations, College Connections sessions must be cancelled three weeks in advance.
