FRESHMAN APPLICATION CHECKLIST:
 

Step 1.  Completed online application

The online application must be completed and submitted online.

To submit the online application, you will be required to create a CUNY Application account or log into your CUNYfirst account.  It is strongly recommended that you complete the application using a desktop computer, instead of a mobile or tablet device.

Step 2.  Submit your non-refundable application fee or waiver

Submit your non-refundable $65 application fee online with a credit or debit card or by sending a check or money order to CUNY/UAPC.  Students sending a check or money order, may send it to the following address:

General Freshman Admission
CUNY/UAPC
P.O. Box 350136
Brooklyn, NY 11235-0001
 
Students may submit an application fee waiver in lieu of the application fee, if provided by their high school counselor.  Military veterans may submit their DD 214 or a copy of their military identification card to waive their application fee.  
 

Step 3.  Send all supporting documents to CUNY/UAPC

Send all supporting documents directly to the City University of New York (CUNY). Send standardized test scores (SAT and/or ACT) to 2950 and official high school transcript and/or GED to the address listed below:

General Freshman Admission
CUNY/UAPC
P.O. Box 350136
Brooklyn, NY 11235-0001
 

We currently do not accept a high school certificate or an Individualized Education Program (IEP) diploma. All incoming freshmen are required to obtain their diploma from an accredited high school, equivalency diploma, or from a United States Armed Forces Institute prior to the start of their first semester.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do NOT send documents to John Jay College.  Sending documents to John Jay College will result in delaying your application.

If you are applying for financial aid, you may begin submitting your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after submitting your online application.  Click here to start your FAFSA application.
