Incoming Students

Pay your commitment deposit

Please confirm your plans by submitting your non-refundable commitment deposit of $250.00.  You may pay by sending a check or money order made out to Baruch College. Please mail or submit to Office of Graduate Admissions, Baruch College/CUNY, One Bernard Baruch Way Box H-0820, New York, NY 10010.

Submit immunization requirements

All students need to submit proof of MMR immunization and proof or waiver for Meningitis immunization before registering for classes. Review and submit your immunization requirements.  If necessary, the Student Health Center offers immunization inoculations at no charge and performs a blood test for a fee if you require.

Verify New York State Residency

New students are automatically classified as out-of-state residents for tuition purposes.  If you believe that you qualify for the lower tuition charged to New York State residents, you must complete the necessary residency form and documentation.  If you attended CUNY as an undergraduate and received resident tuition, this status does not carry over; you must again submit documentation to prove residency.

International students

International students on an F1 visa are advised to review the guidance provided by the International Student Service Center.
