The CUNY Language Immersion Program (CLIP) is an intensive pre-college program for incoming CUNY students for whom English is a second language and who need to improve their academic English language skills prior to enrollment in credit-bearing coursework. The CUNY Office of Academic Affairs and nine CUNY campuses with CLIP on site work collaboratively to provide students with an innovative approach to developmental language education. CLIP is recognized for its carefully designed curricular model, state of the art pedagogy, ongoing professional development and a supportive approach to student development. Classes meet five hours a day, five days a week (in morning or evening sessions). Students with an English language need who have been accepted to any CUNY college can spend up to one year in the program. CLIP is a content-based program in which students develop academic English skills through studying topics in American history, literature, environmental studies, and more. In this way, students build knowledge and academic skills as they develop their English language skills. CLIP students also learn the computer skills needed for college success.
