CUNY Proficiency Requirements

The City University of New York (CUNY) requires all students to demonstrate proficiency in English (reading and writing) and math in order to enroll in most credit-bearing courses. Students may establish proficiency in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, meeting benchmark scores on the SAT, ACT, and New York State Regents exams. See CUNY Testing for the benchmark scores that demonstrate proficiency.

Starting with the spring 2020 entering class, students who do not meet benchmark scores will no longer be administered a placement test to determine proficiency. CUNY will assign a proficiency index for English and math combining overall high school grade point average with SAT and/or Regents exam scores.  More information about the index and course placement for incoming students will be communicated during the admissions and advisement process.
