Applying only to Kingsborough

Go to www.cuny.edu/application to apply online as an undergraduate. You are a freshman if you have never taken any college or university classes and a transfer student if you have. (College Now students should choose freshman.) This video walks you through the CUNY application process:  https://youtu.be/0yXv5x65veM.

Be sure to print a copy of your completed application once you’re done: It contains your new 8-digit CUNYfirst ID number, also known as an EMPLID.

After applying online, you’ll need to send the following supporting documents to the University Application Processing Center.  You’ll need to provide the 8-digit CUNYfirst ID number on your application when submitting your supporting documents.

If you’re applying only to Kingsborough, you’ll need to submit:

  • High school transcript or proof of high school equivalency degree (GED or TASC). If you graduated from a public NYC DOE high school, provide your 9-digit OSIS number when applying so your high school transcript can be sent electronically.
  • College, university and/or proprietary school transcript (transfer students only)

If you are also applying online to other CUNY colleges (you have the option of choosing up to six colleges), you will also need to send:

  • Standardized test scores
  • Recommendations, personal statements, and other supporting materials
  • Supplemental application for selective programs
