Testing Requirements

Freshman applicants must take the CUNY Assessment Tests for admissions purposes. As of Fall 2001, entering students are required to pass all three CUNY Assessment Tests (reading, writing, Math1 and Math2) before enrolling at Lehman and other senior colleges of the City University of New York. Students who are eligible for the SEEK program may be admitted to a baccalaureate program without first demonstrating basic skills proficiency; however, these students must demonstrate the requisite level of proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics within two years of initial enrollment. The two-year time limit is interpreted as consisting of the required pre-freshman immersion program, four regular semesters, two winter immersion programs, and the summer immersion program at the end of each academic year.
