Prepare and Take CUNY Assessment Tests (CAT)

ALL incoming freshmen are required to take one or more parts of the CUNY Assessment Test. If you're a new student you'll receive notification from CUNY (University Application Processing Center) as to which test(s) you need to take. The results of these tests become the foundation for the advisement and registration session. QCC offers you the following support to help you prepare for the CAT: Pre-Test, Post-Test, and Online Resources.

PRE-TEST Strategies and Resource Session

We help you prepare for CAT by providing you with an overview of test content, format, and time. We will share with you our best tips and strategies to help you prepare and do your personal best on the CAT. To register or for more information please contact us.
