Transcripts If you are currently attending a NYC DOE high school, do not* send a paper transcript. Instead, you must enter your nine-digit OSIS number in Section 2 of the Admission Application. This will enable us to retrieve your transcript after your application has been submitted and the non-refundable application fee has been received. If you completed a portion of your education outside the NYC DOE but within the U.S., please make certain that your NYC DOE transcript indicates coursework and grades completed at all previously attended high schools. If coursework and grades are not included on your NYC DOE transcript, a paper copy of your original transcript from each previously attended high school is required. If your record includes education completed outside the U.S., a copy of your foreign transcript in its original language is required. If your transcript is in a language other than English, an English translation is also required. Transcripts should be attached to the High School Transcript Request form included in your Application Summary Package and sent to CUNY/UAPC.
SAT/ACT Score Report
SAT/ACT scores are required if you are applying to a four-year college. To request SAT/ACT scores, use the CUNY institutional code (2950). You do not need to use both the CUNY institutional code and a specific CUNY college code. We will also accept SAT/ACT scores sent by your high school counselor/college advisor. Test scores should be attached to the Document Return Receipt form included in your Application Summary Package attached and sent to CUNY/UAPC.
