Degree Students

Degree-seeking students enrolling at Queens College must demonstrate 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). In addition, some students are required to take the ATB test​ in order to qualify for NYS TAP support. All exams are taken and scheduled through Testing. 

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 in these courses at the college are set by the Mathematics Department.

How to Register and Prepare for the CUNY Assessment Test at Queens College

Most students being considered for admission will receive an appointment letter with a prescheduled test date. 

Note: Testing for the Fall 2019-Spring 2020 academic year will begin June 1, 2019. 

If you have any questions about testing, contact​.​ For more information pertaining to these exams and for CUNY Assessment Test preparation resources, visit
