Direct Admissions for Fall 2022

Thank you for your interest in applying to City Tech through our On-the-Spot admissions, which offers students the opportunity to apply only to City Tech, instead of taking a chance on a different CUNY campus placement.

We are accepting applications for the Fall 2022 semester. Access the online application here.

Please note, if you are an international student seeking an F1 status, you must apply directly to the University Application Processing Center (UAPC) for the Spring 2023 semester. City Tech can only accept Direct Admission applications from students who were educated within the United States. Students who have been educated outside of the United States must apply at CUNY Undergraduate Admissions for the upcoming semester. You may need to submit additional documentation to complete your application to CUNY.
