Skills Proficiency Testing
All Non-Degree and Degree readmits are required to demonstrate basic levels of competence in reading, writing, and mathematics through proficiency testing. Students who have failed any part of the CUNY Assessment Test cannot re-enroll at Hunter. Once proficiency can be demonstrated, students may apply for readmission to Hunter. Baccalaureate degree holders from regionally accredited U.S. Institutions and Senior Citizens are exempt from testing. To contact the Testing Office regarding the CUNY Assessment Test, click here.
Students Applying for Non-Degree Readmission
Students will not be readmitted to non-degree status if they have already completed 12 credit hours and have not demonstrated basic levels of competence in reading, writing and mathematics through basic skills testing.
Non-degree students must either matriculate or leave the college when they have attempted 24 credits. Baccalaureate, Master’s and doctoral degree holders from a college or university accredited by a regional U.S. accrediting association are exempt from the 24 credit limit, provided proof of degree is submitted along with their application.
Students Applying for Degree Readmission
Students will be admitted back into their last declared major, provided they were in good academic standing (2.0 grade point average or higher). Students with grade point averages below 2.0, if re-admitted, will have to redeclare a major. Students whose last attendance was in the School of Health Professions will be re-admitted to the School of Arts and Sciences and must meet with a departmental advisor to seek approval to return to their previous major.
Please send official transcripts from all undergraduate colleges attended since your last attendance at Hunter to: Hunter College, Office of Admissions, Room 203N-Evaluations, 695 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10065.
SEEK students who have not been in attendance for four or more semesters and/or have been in the SEEK program for ten semesters or more, need special permission to return to SEEK. Students with less than 60 credits who do not wish to return to SEEK must obtain a release from the Director of the SEEK program. To contact the SEEK office click here.
