Deadline & Eligibility

The applications are accepted all year-round, on a rolling basis. Please feel free to contact Chinese Flagship office if you have any questions regarding the program.

All full-time Hunter College students who are US citizens with good academic standing (GPA 3.5 for humanities and GPA 3.0 for science majors) can apply.

We welcome all students who share the Chinese Flagship goal of becoming a global professional, and who are committed to taking advantage of the educational opportunities and completing the requirements. Students do not need to have prior Chinese language proficiency or learning experience. We accept students who have no background as well as those with some Chinese proficiency. We accept both Chinese heritage and non-heritage students. Our goal is for you to achieve superior level proficiency in speaking, listening, and reading by the time you finish Flagship.
