Applying to Queens College (Spring 2017 and later)

Candidates apply to Queens College by using the CUNY Transfer Application. All transcripts from all previous colleges must be submitted, as well as a high school transcript.

The CUNY.edu website has prepared a pdf worksheet to help you navigate through the online application process. It’s a good idea to review this worksheet before you begin the Admission Application.

1. Complete and Submit Admission Application

This is done at www.cuny.edu. The process is slightly different for students transferring within CUNY and from an institution outside of CUNY.

Currently enrolled:If you are already enrolled at a CUNY college and plan to maintain continuous attendance between semesters (Fall or Spring) at a CUNY college, you are considered “currently enrolled”.

  • You will need to apply using your CUNY Portal username and password.
  • You will need to know your Expected Entrance Term (the semester you plan to start at Queens) and information about attendance and coursework at your current CUNY college.
  • Complete the application for General Admission, review your answers, and submit it.  (Once you submit your application, you won’t be able to make any further changes.)

All other transfer applicants:This applies if you are transferring from a college, university, or any other institution outside of CUNY, or if you are a former CUNY student not currently enrolled at any CUNY college.

  • You will need to register for a CUNY Portal account, if you don’t already have one.  When you register for the CUNY Portal, you must provide your Social Security number if you are planning to apply for financial aid.  (Check the worksheet for more details about this, including what to do if you don’t have a Social Security number.)
  • You will need to know your Expected Entrance Term (the semester you plan to start at Queens).
  • Complete the application for General Admission, review your answers, and submit it.  (Once you submit your application, you won’t be able to make any further changes.)

2. Pay Application Processing Fee

A $70 non-refundable application processing fee is required for all applicants not currently enrolled at a CUNY college. This fee is payable online, or with a check or money order. Check the worksheet for more details.

3. Print Application Summary Package

Once you have submitted the Admission Application, download and print your Application Summary Package and make a note of your Application Control Number.

4. Send Required Supporting Documents to CUNY/UAPC
