Admissions

Are you ready to apply to Queens College? You can apply as either 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—or as a 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. 

Application Deadlines

The Spring and Fall 2018 applications are now available at cuny.edu/apply.

Freshman Review Process

The admission review process provides us with an opportunity to assess your entire high school academic record, which includes: academic units, grades/grade trends, standardized test scores, essays/personal statements and letters of recommendation.

As we consider each applicant, we also look beyond the classroom. Extracurricular accomplishments, special talents and awards in particular fields along with academic achievements in light of life experiences or special circumstances are weighed to determine a student’s potential for success at Queens College.

 Before applying, you should check CUNY’s Application Checklist, which provides an overview of the application process from preparing your application through enrollment and orientation. You can visit the CUNY website for full details: cuny.edu/prepare

Transfer Review Process

The admission review process provides us with an opportunity to assess your entire academic record, including all attempted and completed courses and grades earned and essays/personal statements and letters of recommendation. Applicants to our 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.

Your entire college/postsecondary school academic history, including grades earned from courses taken more than once, will be used to determine a grade point average (GPA). If more than one college/postsecondary school was attended, your GPA will be determined through a combined calculation of all attempted coursework. Your high school/secondary school record will be considered if you have completed fewer than 30 college credits.

As we consider each applicant, we also look beyond the classroom. Extracurricular accomplishments, special talents and awards in particular fields along with academic achievements in light of life experiences or special circumstances are weighed to determine a student’s potential for success at Queens College.
