For newly accepted College Discovery students
Dates To Remember
CUNY Assessment Test
All new students must take one or more of the college’s placement tests in Reading, Writing and/or Math. If these tests are necessary, you will receive notification in the mail. It’s important that you follow up and take these tests. The results of these tests become the foundation for the advisement and registration session. Your CD counselor will need the results to help place you in the correct classes. To learn more, click here.
All students registered in remedial courses in Reading, Writing, or Math will retest in these areas at the end of the semester. Students who are still not able to pass the Reading or Writing test(s) will not be able to begin English Composition (Freshman English) until they pass. Also, students who are not able to pass the Math test cannot take the first credit-bearing Math course.
