CUNY Assessment Test in Reading and CUNY Assessment Test in Writing

Students who fail the CUNY Assessment Test in Reading on entrance are required to take the appropriate 0-level reading course in their first semester.

Students who score 6 on the CUNY Assessment Test in Writing on entrance are required to take the appropriate 0-level writing course within their first 12 equated credits.

Students who score 5 or below on the CUNY Assessment Test in Writing on entrance are required to take the appropriate 0-level writing course within their first eight equated credits.

Students needing remediation are expected to complete the remedial courses that qualify them to enter college-level writing courses in one year, which may include, in addition to two semesters, a pre-freshman and a post-freshman Summer Immersion course and a Winter Intersession. Students for whom English is a second language (ESL students) have two academic years to pass the assessment tests in reading and writing. The tests are administered at the end of most academic interventions that students complete (remedial courses, Summer Immersion, January Intersession, or tutorial workshops).
