About our Educational Services

On Point for College offers a full suite of higher education support services. We work with our students from application through admission, to graduation, and beyond.

We help any student with a higher education goal – be it a two or four-year college degree program, a graduate or professional degree program, a certificate, or another type of professional training. We work with students who are pursuing higher education for the first time. We also work with students who have already embarked on their educational journeys, but need a little help, as well as students whose educations were interrupted but who are looking to get started again.

The ideal new On Point student is:

  1. At least a high school junior. They may also be high school seniors or graduates or recipients of a GED/TASC certificate. Individuals currently working towards a TASC certificate are also eligible to enroll.
  2. Attending or planning to attend a two or four-year college or a vocational or certificate training program. Individuals interested in taking refresher or skill-building courses in preparation for college are also eligible to enroll.
  3. Living in Cayuga, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, or Oswego Counties.
