Step 3: Preparing to Apply

City College utilizes an online application process. The first step will be to create a User Account in our online application system. Once you create an account, you will be able to log in and out of the system, completing all the required sections of the application at a pace of your choosing. All data is saved so you can complete the application in stages and from wherever you are able to access the internet.

When you log into the application system, it is important to familiarize yourself with the Application Instructions. There are several pages of instructions which pertain to the different sections of the application. 

Once you complete all the required sections of the application, including uploading required materials and identifying who your recommenders are, you will be able to submit the application electronically to the Office of Admissions. Upon submission, you will receive a confirmation email informing you of where and what to the send to the Office of Admissions. This includes, but is not limited to: application fee, official transcripts, portfolio, etc. City College does not currently accept online payments of the application fee. It must be mailed to our office in the form of a check or money order, made payable to The City College of New York for $75 USD.

After submitting your application, please log in to your MyCityGrad page in order to keep track of missing items and status. To receive full consideration, all supporting documents must be received by the application deadline. Materials received after the deadline cannot be guaranteed a review for the semester in which you have applied.

Admissions decisions are posted as they are rendered. You will receive an email informing you when a decision has been made. You will have access to your admissions decision via your online application.
