The admission review process provides us with an opportunity to assess your entire academic record, including all attempted and completed courses, and grades earned. We also look beyond the classroom. Extracurricular accomplishments, special talents and awards, and life experiences are weighed to determine a student’s potential for success at CUNY college.
The tables below reflect the average academic profiles of both admitted freshmen and admitted transfer students at each CUNY undergraduate college for the Fall of 2017. The Freshman Profile consists of the average high school GPA and test scores for admitted freshmen at each college. The Transfer Profile consists of the average college GPA and number of transferrable credits for admitted transfer students at each college. Transfer applicants to four-year colleges must have completed at least one college-level course in Mathematics and English with a grade of “C” or better, or must demonstrate college-level readiness based on SAT, ACT, AP, IB or New York Regents test scores.
This information is helpful as applicants decide which colleges within CUNY are an appropriate academic fit for them. Keep in mind, however, that these profiles are an average, not a minimum standard for admission. Applicants may be admissible to a particular college if their academic profile (GPA, testing, credits) falls within range (both above and below) of the stated average.
