Overview


The City University of New York (CUNY) no longer requires entering students to take the CUNY Assessment tests in reading, writing, and mathematics to demonstrate their proficiency and readiness to do college-level work. Student course placements in mathematics and English will be based on the evaluation of their academic records. A test of Spanish proficiency is given to students for appropriate placement in Spanish-language courses. Students are not permitted to register without the required proficiency index or the proof of exemption accepted by the University.

The Testing Center is committed to providing excellent customer service to our students, faculty and community, while ensuring the integrity of testing in a secure environment. The Testing Center administers the following exams: Ability to Benefit (ATB) test to determine eligibility for New York State TAP benefits, and other assessment tests for course placement purposes.
