CUNY invites you to the “Flipping the Switch” event Tuesday August 11th and Wednesday August 12th ( a day for women who served or are serving). The College Readiness Program at John Jay College ranked #3 as Best for Vets by the Military Times, leverages student veteran-immersion experience to create a specialized, day-long orientation for all veterans and service members in the NYC metro area and beyond planning to attend college to help make these transitions easier. The event is open to all service members, veterans and reservists.

The Flipping the Switch Orientation is a pioneering program that will guide veterans through their prospective academic journey and more. The program with continuing activities is designed to inform veterans on what to expect as they enter the college campus and how to apply proven strategies and tools to become engaged and successful students and members of the college community.
