Transfer Admission

There has never been a better time to enroll as a transfer student at The City College of New York. CCNY is committed to providing an environment that fosters innovation and cultivates future leaders through academic excellence, research and community. Transfer students are an important part of our campus.

The Transfer application is the right choice if you have attended college after graduating from high school. You may also use this application if you are pursuing a second undergraduate degree. If you are returning to City College after taking a break, you may need to submit the re-entry application instead.
