*International students please see further below for information regarding Form I-20.
1. ACCEPT OUR OFFER OF ADMISSION
Log into your CUNYfirst account, click on View Details, then Accept Offer, and finally, Confirm Accept Offer.
2. COMMIT TO BARUCH
Click on Pay Commitment Deposit to pay the $100 commitment deposit by credit card or e-check. See the deadline as stated in your acceptance email. (If you do not see the Pay Commitment Deposit button, your deposit has been waived.)
3. LOGIN TO YOUR myBARUCH PORTAL
A few days after submitting your commitment deposit you will receive an email inviting you to log into your myBaruch portal (baruch.edu/myBaruch) where you will find info on orientation, testing, and more!
4. TAKE ALL NECESSARY PLACEMENT TESTS
All new students who have met the University’s college readiness requirement in math are required to take the College-Level Math (Math 6) test. The results of this test will be used to place students in the appropriate mathematics course. Testing tickets are emailed after you have accepted Baruch’s offer of admission via CUNYfirst. These tests are given by the Office of Testing and Evaluation.
5. COMPLETE THE FAFSA (U.S. residents only)
Fill out the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is required to be considered for any financial aid or honors programs. Apply at fafsa.ed.gov.
6. SUBMIT IMMUNIZATION DOCUMENTATION
All students must submit proof of MMR immunization and proof or waiver for Meningitis immunization before registering for classes. You cannot register for classes until your forms are turned in. Please submit your immunization documents to the Medical Records Unit within the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. If you previously submitted this information to another CUNY college, we will retrieve it electronically.
7. RSVP FOR AND ATTEND ORIENTATION
Freshman and Transfer Orientation invitations are emailed on a rolling basis after the commitment deposit has been paid or waived, and you have completed the Math placement test. Orientation sessions will begin as early as May and run through August.
8. REGISTER FOR CLASSES AND PAY YOUR TUITION
After you have registered, you can check your tuition bill on your CUNYfirst account. Tuition payments can be made at the Office of the Bursar. The Bursar’s Office accepts cash, check and money orders. For more information on payment options, please click here.
