Basic Skills Proficiency
The Board of Trustees of The City University of New York has mandated that every student meet a minimum University-wide level of proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics before entering the senior college. Lehman College administers the CUNY/ACT Reading and Writing Assessment Tests and the CUNY Mathematics Assessment Test (MAT) to all students after admission to the College, but prior to beginning classes, to determine whether the students meet minimum University and College standards.
Students who fail either the CUNY/ACT Reading and/or Writing Assessment Tests or the CUNY Mathematics Assessment Test may be invited to enter a "Prelude to Success" program offered at Bronx Community College.
