Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

City College of New York's Brooklyn College, founded in 1930, is a public, liberal arts institution. It is committed to providing its students with a strong liberal arts education. The cornerstone of that commitment is the college's core curriculum, which has long been a national model for general education programs. The ten core studies courses expose students to the principal branches of learning, including the arts, humanities and sciences, and provide a rigorous foundation for study in a major field. The college offers more than 125 majors and programs in the humanities, sciences, performing arts, social sciences, education and preprofessional and professional studies. Its 26-acre campus is located in Brooklyn's Flatbush section.
