If you plan on applying to a CUNY school, please check out the helpful tips below.
1. Update your college list on Naviance
Be aware that there is a "City University of New York" college listing. Do not select this option! Add a new entry for each CUNY school that you are applying to.
2. Fill out the CUNY application online
Go to www.cuny.edu/apply where you will be prompted to register for a free CUNY portal account. You must complete this to apply. Once you log on to the CUNY portal you will be able to complete you CUNY application.
VERY IMPORTANT! In the Student Information Section under High school/Secondary School Information, where it asks for the name of your high school, type "Notre Dame School" and click the box that says "Search for HS in NYS".
You can apply to up to six CUNY schools with the online application.
CUNY prefers that you pay online, however if you prefer to pay by check or money order the check should be made out to CUNY UAPC for $65. All checks should have your name and social security number written on them. You can apply to up to six CUNY schools with this one fee. Checks, Fee Waivers, and Money Orders should be sent to: University Application Processing Center, PO Box 350136 Brooklyn, NY 11235-0001. If you are mailing to the honors college the address is University Application Processing Center, PO Box 359021 Brooklyn, NY 11235-0001.
Fee waivers for CUNY are limited and will be given on a first come/first served basis.
3. You MUST request that The College Board or an ACT center send SAT and/or ACT scores directly to CUNY. This can be done at the College Board website and the ACT website. It is not necessary to send the scores to each CUNY campus if you enter the college code 2950 the score will be sent to the University Application Processing Center and will then be accessible to ALL CUNY CAMPUSES.
4. CUNY (other than the Honors College and Teacher Academy) works on a rolling admissions basis (meaning there is no deadline and applications will be reviewed for admission once all required materials are received by the processing center). The earlier you send this application, the better.
We are suggesting that all students turn in CUNY application materials by November 1st!
