Prohibition on Submission of Fraudulent Admission Documents
The submission of documents in support of applications for admission - such as transcripts, diplomas, test scores, references, or the applications themselves, that are forged, fraudulent, altered from the original, obtained under false pretenses, or otherwise deceptive is prohibited and is punishable by a five-year ban on applying for admission or five-year suspension from CUNY. A second violation is punishable by a lifetime ban on applying for admission or expulsion from CUNY.
Please see CUNY's complete Policy on the Submission of Fraudulent Documents in Support of an Application for Admission for more information.
Undergraduate students who are in good academic standing, and have missed two consecutive semesters, not counting the Summer term, must complete a new application to be considered for re-admission. If during this time they attended other schools, they must provide transcripts from those schools. Students will receive re-admission decisions in writing. There is no guarantee of re-admission.
New York State Public Health Law 2165 requires all students entering a post-secondary institution to provide their health services center with immunity to Measles, Mumps and Rubella. This law applies to students born on or after January 1, 1957, who are registered for 6 or more credits at a CUNY campus. Proof of immunity must be documented by a health care practitioner or other acceptable evidence in the following ways:
- Measles, otherwise known as rubeola -- 2 doses live measles vaccine administered after 12 months of age and at least 30 days apart (exact dates of vaccinations are required);
- Mumps, 1 live dose mumps vaccine administered after 12 months of age (exact dates of vaccination is required);
- Rubella, also known as German measles --1 live dose mumps vaccine administered after 12 months of age (exact dates of vaccination is required);
- Serology (lab) report showing immunity to measles, mumps and rubella. The lab report must be an actual copy showing your immunity to MMR’s.
We will accept any one of the following documentation for your MMR vaccinations:
- A copy of your immunizations (including actual dates) on an official government/ school letterhead — the simplest place to obtain this may be from your most recently attended high school or college; OR
- A copy of your immunizations (including actual dates) on physician’s letterhead, which includes printed name, address and telephone number; OR
- Have a blood test to confirm immunity. Please note: a copy of the lab report must accompany your campus immunization form for acceptance.
