Decisions are e-mailed on a rolling basis after the priority deadline. We examine your entire high school academic records, including difficulty of classes, GPA and grade trends. We also look at the strength of your standardized test scores (SAT, ACT, NY State Regents) and any additional supporting documents including the recommended essay, activity sheet, and letters of recommendation.
Applications submitted after the priority deadline will be considered on a space available basis.
You can check the status of your application by logging into your CUNYfirst account and selecting 'Student Center' then 'Admissions' then 'View Details.' You can also call the processing center's automated system at the Office of Admissions Services at (212) 997-2869.
CUNY hosts an excellent resource for high school students, available here.

The Macaulay Honors College application is available online. The Macaulay application requires test scores, two essays and two letters of recommendation. If Baruch is your first choice for honors, make sure to list it as such on your application.
Students applying to Macaulay may also be considered for the Baruch Honors program and other merit-based scholarships. For more information please visit: Macaulay Honors Program.
