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.


Immunization records are required prior to registration. Please complete this form and return it to medicalrecords@baruch.cuny.edu. Students that have attended a CUNY school in the last 10 years should already have the immunization requirement satisfied. See Immunization Requirements page for more information.

Verify New York State Residency

Tuition charges are determined by a student’s residency status in New York State. The Office of Graduate Admissions classifies incoming students as either in-state or out-of-state, based on the College’s residency regulations.  Students should review their tuition bill after registering for classes to insure they have been correctly classified. Students who wish to appeal their classification should submit the required residency form and supporting documentation to the Residency Unit in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

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.
