Intended Plan Check

In order to be considered for admission, students must have an intended Zicklin BBA plan (major) on their CUNYfirst account. Students can check their CUNYfirst Student Center (click “My Academics” link) to see if their plan (major) is correct.

  • Students who have “Undeclared” as their plan or have an intended plan in the Weissman School or School of Public Affairs but wish to be admitted into Zicklin must go to the Registrar’s Office to change their plan (major). Students may fill out an intended major form, and submit the completed form to the Registrar’s Office.
  • Students who have been officially admitted into the Weissman School or the School of Public Affairs must first visit that School’s Dean’s Office to have their “Officially Accepted” service indicator released and student group inactivated from CUNYfirst and then submit an intended major form to change their plan at the Registrar’s Office.

Review Process & Acceptance

Admission review begins after the previous semester’s final grades are posted and are processed in batches within two weeks. Students whose grades are posted late or have grade changes will be reviewed before the start of registration for the next semester.

You can check your Zicklin acceptance status on your CUNYfirst Student Center. There will be a star symbol (positive service indicator) at the top of your CUNYfirst Student Center. Your “Holds” box will show “Accepted into Official Major.” Find out how to check your admissions status here.
