How to Apply


Complete the CUNY Application at: The CUNY Application – The City University of New York

Complete the ADP Personal Statement. This is a very important part of your application so please take your time with it. 

STEP 3: If you previously have attended college, we will need an official transcript from all institutions attended (except for other CUNY institutions), as well as a copy of your high school transcript or high school equivalency diploma (GED).

You should have these official documents emailed directly to us from your previous school(s) at If you're unable to obtain your transcript electronically, then official transcripts should be mailed to:

Adult Degree Program
Lehman College - Carman Hall, Room 128
250 Bedford Park Blvd West
Bronx, NY 10468

Please keep in mind that mailed documents take longer to arrive and must be in sealed envelopes. Once the envelope is opened, the document is no longer considered an official transcript.

STEP 4: If you plan to apply for Financial Aid, do so right away. Make sure you complete both the FAFSA and TAP applications. More information is here.
