Dear Parent Leaders,


We’re excited to announce NYC College Line, a new web resource to provide city-specific information on the college process. As a free, online community—available at—NYC College Line will allow you, your students and families to get rapid responses to all of your NYC-college-related questions, from finding local programs, to admissions and application procedures, to tips on completing college successfully.


NYC College Line will allow users to visit, join, or open an online forum about their most pressing concerns. Users can also utilize the “Ask an Advisor” service to receive rapid support from professionals. Online resources will be constantly updated with the best available, most up-to-date information from around New York City—borough by borough so you can find the resources closest to your community—and on the web. Moreover, a network of professionals and educators will write guides and post video tutorials on topics ranging from admissions, to financial aid, to summer internship opportunities. Users can access translated support and resources in 10 languages.


Please share this information with your school communities and encourage parents and school leaders to visit NYC College Line.



Thank you for your support,


Division of Family and Community Engagement
