Accepted Transfer Students

Welcome to John Jay!

We are delighted that you will be joining our college community.  While this is an exciting time for you as you embark on your college career, it's an exciting time for us, too.  We look forward to seeing how you and your classmates will make John Jay a different place - by making it your own.

To enroll as a Transfer Student, follow these steps:

1. Accept our Offer of Admission

To ensure that you have a seat, you must accept our offer of admission in CUNYfirst and submit a non-refundable, non-transferable $100* commitment deposit. This deposit will be applied toward your tuition charges.

To submit your deposit:

  1. ​Log in to your CUNYfirst account using the same username and password you created when you filed your admission application.
  2. Navigate to the Student Center.
  3. Go to the Admissions tab at the bottom and select View Details for John Jay College. You can then either accept or decline your offer of admission to John Jay. If you accept, you will have the ability to pay by credit or debit card.

 

*If you qualify for a waiver, you will not see the Pay Commitment Deposit button. Waivers are given to veterans and their dependents; SEEK students and students who have filed financial aid and have an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of $3,000 or less.


For Fall 2019

For the Fall semester, the deposit must be received/postmarked by May 1st. If you are admitted after May 1st, the deposit is due 10 days after the date you received your admission notification.  

 

2. Study and Take the Mathematics Placement Test

You may receive an email from the John Jay Testing and Evaluation Office notifying you to RSVP for a date and time of the CUNY Assessment Test in Mathematics.

It is important to take this test as soon as possible. Contact the Testing and Evaluation Office at 212.237.8108 or email testing@jjay.cuny.edu if you need to reschedule.
