Degree-seeking students enrolling at Queens College must demonstrate that they meet college readiness in reading, writing and mathematics as outlined by the City University of New York
at the time of application. Otherwise, students can demonstrate that they satisfy college readiness by passing the appropriate CUNY Assessment Test(s)
All incoming students who have demonstrated college readiness will still be required to take the Math Placement Test (College-Level Math, Math 6) for placement into advanced mathematics or mathematics-related courses. Minimum scores for enrollment into advanced mathematics or mathematics-related courses at the College are set by the Mathematics Department.
