• The internet based TOEFL score of 80 is equivalent to a 550 on the paper based TOEFL

Students applying from outside of the United States should apply earlier than the regular priority deadline dates because transcripts may take longer to be received and processed by the CUNY Processing Center.

We suggest students have their applications completed and sent in at least 4 weeks prior to the deadline.
