What should I do to prepare for orientation?

We're here to help you succeed. Part of being a successful college student is learning how to navigate the College's rules, regulations and deadlines. 

A Message to New Students from: Interim Vice President Thornton, General EducationAdmissions, Bursar, Financial Aid, IT and Registrar.


NOTE: To be eligible for New York State tuition and fees, you may be required to prove New York State residency. If there is a question regarding your N.Y. State residency and you wish to be charged in-state rates, you must complete a CUNY Residency Form. The information you provide will determine if you meet the guidelines set by the City University of New York. Failure to provide the required documentation will result in your being billed as a non-resident. Incomplete applications or missing documents will delay the processing of the application. 

What events will happen during orientation?

The Orientation Committee is planning a series of fun and informative activities to welcome you, the Class of 2021, acclimate to life at City College.
