Congratulations on your acceptance to Hunter. We know this can be a pretty stressful time in your life, so we’ve gathered some of the most Frequently Asked Questions that we receive from newly admitted students. If we’ve missed something, don’t hesitate to contact us. GO HAWKS!
Congrats, you are officially a Hawk! Approximately 2-3 days after you deposit, you’ll receive access to your Admitted Student Portal (starting in April). You’ll use this account to take various enrollment steps such as register for orientation. Share you Hunter pride on social by using #headed2hunter.
You’ll receive a transfer credit evaluation approximately 3 weeks after you deposit to Hunter. We’ll send you an email once it’s ready and your credits will appear in your CUNYfirst account.
Visit our page for freshman applicants and you’ll see an explanation of how to submit all of your exam scores.
If you took College Now at CUNY, we’ll see that and automatically add your credit to your evaluation. If you took College classes while in high school outside of CUNY, please be sure to send us your transcript electronically, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“CIP” on your record simply means that your final grades were not on your transcript when it was evaluated. We need an updated official transcript from your previous institution. Please ask your previous school to send an official transcript directly to email@example.com.
Please note that it could take until September or October for “CIP” grades to be updated in CUNYfirst, but don't worry, “CIP” will not affect your registration for classes.
Of course! Reach out to your admissions counselor on the Meet Your Admissions Counselor webpage. Or you can live chat us during business hours (click on Staff at the to).
