Students receive help with exploring careers, choosing a college, applying to college, and understanding the required documents inclunding trasncripts, translations, and exams (TOEFL, CUNY CAT Basic Skills Test).
TAKING THE TOEFL
If you are a non-resident who completed your secondary school education in a country where English is not the primary language, you need to take the TOEFL exam to get into college or graduate school in the United States. Each college and graduate school has different exam requirements. You should check the specific school you are interested in to find out its TOEFL requirements. Click here for TOEFL score requirements at CUNY colleges.
The Day Intensive Program and Evening Intensive Program provide a solid foundation in academic English language instruction. This foundation can help you prepare for the different parts of the TOEFL exam. Additionally, TOEFL Preparation Workshops are offered in the afternoon program.
Students who complete the highest level of the Day or Evening Program do not need the TOEFL to apply to any City University of New York undergraduate program. See staff for more information.
