Queens College students can register through CUNYfirst. Students from other CUNY campuses must obtain an e-permit from CUNY and then register through CUNYfirst. Visiting undergraduate and graduate students who do not attend a CUNY school—including those from SUNY and private colleges, and high school students with proof of a diploma—may apply through our Undergraduate Visiting Student Application and Graduate Visiting Student Application. Those not enrolled at another higher education institution wishing to take courses on a non-matriculated basis must complete the non-degree application.
High School students may also take advantage of free opportunities for academic development through two offerings in the College Now Program—the Summer Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Queens College Summer Science Program. The Summer Institute runs during Queens College Summer Session 2, Monday through Thursday, and is designed to address high school students’ academic, cultural and social interests and needs. The overall purpose of the Summer Science Program is to expose students to hot topics in the major scientific fields. Part of a city-wide initiative between the CUNY and the NYC Department of Education, College Now’s primary goals are to improve the academic achievement of high school students and to ensure that graduating students are ready to do college-level work. All courses, workshops and textbooks are free to NYC Public High School students.
