Zicklin Graduate Admissions

Incoming Students

Commitment Deposit

New students are required to submit a non-refundable $250 commitment deposit to secure their seat in their intended graduate program. The deposit is credited towards tuition and fees in the first semester. Submit your payment with the Commitment Deposit Form.

Coronavirus Update: We are only able to accept deposits via wire transfer at this time, as we are not physically able to access mail delivered to the campus.

Admission Status

New students must be fully admitted before they can register for classes. Applicants who are admitted conditionally are required to supply any remaining original documents to gain full admission. Check your ApplyYourself account.

Activate your CUNYfirst account

CUNYfirst is a web-based system for students to register for courses, review schedules and transcripts, and pay bills.  You must activate your CUNYfirst account in order to access the system. Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox are the recommended browsers.

Submit immunization requirements

All students need to submit proof of MMR immunization and proof or waiver for Meningitis immunization before the start of the semester. Review and submit your immunization requirements.  The Student Health Center offers immunization inoculations at no charge and performs a blood test for a fee.

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

The International Student Service Center (ISSC) is available to provide advice and assistance to all international students as they prepare to study at Baruch College. The Office of Graduate Admissions notifies ISSC of admitted students who may require an F1 visa or J1 visa, based on information submitted during the admission process.
