Before you apply, visit cuny.edu/prepare to familiarize yourself with the application steps, admission review process and admission profiles. Be sure to download and complete the proper Application Worksheet before you begin the online Admission Application.

Once you have prepared, apply as a:

  • Freshman applicant if you have not previously attended any college, university and/or proprietary school within or outside the United States since graduating from high school or secondary school.
  • Transfer applicant if you have attended any college, university and/or proprietary school since graduating from high school/secondary school. This applies whether or not you are seeking transfer credit and/or changing a program of study.
