To be considered for admission, international students are expected to meet these general requirements:
TOEFL is given by the Educational Testing Service, Princeton, N.J., at various testing centers here and abroad. Students who may have already taken the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) or come from an English-speaking country may submit the SAT scores instead.
Students seeking more information about applying as an international student should visit the International Student Affairs & Center for Immigration website.
Apply online directly with the City University of New York.
Students who want to be assured that their applications will receive first priority are strongly advised to meet the recommended deadline dates. Deadline dates for admission are September 15th for Spring, and February 1st for Fall admission.
New students who cannot register for the upcoming semester may file a REACTIVATION FORM for the next semester. This form is to be returned to the Queensborough Community College Admissions Office. Students who file for Reactivation early gain an advance start for advisement and registration for the following semester. There is no fee for this reactivation service.
