Through this RFP, HESC is looking to provide services to assist NYGEAR UP students in their first year in higher education such that they can succeed in school. Services provided by NYGEAR UP through this RFP should not, to the maximum extent possible, duplicate services otherwise offered to these students but supplement and enhance them. It is critical that projects coordinate with campus programs, including academic support services for the best effect.

Under this RFP, NYGEAR UP will work with a cohort of up to 4,000 students enrolled in either a New York State two- year Community College or a four-year college/university.

NYGEAR UP Year 7: College Success is designed to:
 Reduce the number of students needing remedial classes.
 Increase the rate of college persistence as measured by completion of year 1 in good academic standing and enrollment in year 2.
