Test Schedule

Congratulations on your admission to the City College of New York!

One of the most important steps towards finalizing your enrollment, and/or meeting your major entry criteria, is completing all required testing. We automatically invites all students who are accepted to City College and required to take one or more of the CUNY Assessment Tests (CATS)

Steps to schedule the CUNY Assessment Tests

Activate Your MyCity Page: This is your personal City College web portal that will provide your personalized checklist of items needed to complete the post-admission process. Your login information was provided to you in your acceptance letter/e-mail.
Register: You can only take this test once, and your results will be sent to all of the City University of New York (CUNY) colleges to which you have been admitted. 

Absolutely no one will be allowed to the testing session without registering for the test beforehand.

Deadline – You must take your required testing before you can attend Academic Planning where you will meet with your academic advisor and register for your classes. 
If you are unable to attend your testing session, you must "Decline" this event from your My City College Events portal on your MyCity homepage and reschedule your exam through MyCity.
