Entering Freshmen

Results of CUNY and Hostos assessment tests are used to determine placement into the appropriate level of classes in reading, writing, English as a Second Language (ESL), mathematics, or languages (Spanish, French or Italian). For French and/or Italian students should speak with the Modern Language Department. Students who are placed in remedial or developmental courses will have an opportunity to retake the CUNY assessment test(s) after successfully completing those courses. Students should consult with an academic advisor or counselor to ensure that they meet the progress requirements of specific majors. Students who do not meet the college readiness requirement in one or more areas have several options:

  • Enroll in a free summer/winter immersion program.

  • Participate in CUNY Start, Math Start, or CLIP.

  • Enroll in the necessary remedial courses at a CUNY community college, or in an associates’ program at a comprehensive college.
