Submit Final Transcripts (Freshman Only) NYC DOE High Schools
We will receive an electronic version of your final transcript with date of graduation. DO NOT send a final transcript. However, you may be asked to submit a copy of your High School diploma to the college.
Transfer Credits (Transfer Applicants Only)
Upon admission, CUNY colleges may also request to see course descriptions that indicate the individual course title, material covered, text books used and any other information about the course to determine the number of transfer credits awarded.
All Other High Schools
Please send your final high school transcript indicating your graduation date and type of diploma received. In addition, be advised that some colleges may require you to provide a copy of your high school diploma directly to the college.
The final transcript must include your Application Control Number (“W” number). Transcripts sent without the “W” number will not be accepted and may cause a delay in your enrollment.

Prepare and Take CUNY Assessment Test (CAT)
Preparing for the CUNY Assessment Test (CAT) is strongly encouraged as these tests will determine your placement in Mathematics and/or English (Reading/Writing) courses.
All students admitted to a CUNY four-year college must take the CAT in Mathematics before enrolling in the college, regardless of New York State Regents, SAT, ACT, and/or AP scores in Mathematics. Test results will be used for placement purposes in the appropriate mathematics course.
All students will be asked to take the CAT in Mathematics and/or English for placement in first year courses.
After you submit your Commitment Tuition Deposit, the college will send your testing date/location via email or standard mail, so be sure to check your email/mail from the college frequently.
Note: In some cases, testing information may arrive prior to your financial aid award package.
Visit the CUNY Assessment Test page for online resources to help you prepare.
