Admissions & Aid
You can upload unofficial transcripts so that your application will be processed faster. Once you are admitted, you must submit official transcripts. Transcripts must be mailed to:
Office of Graduate Admissions
222 West Quad Center
2900 Bedford Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11210
You must submit an official transcript from each college or university you have attended for academic credit, showing all courses, grades, and degrees received. These institutions must send an official transcript to Brooklyn College either by mail or via e-mail. You may also hand-deliver your school’s official transcript in a sealed envelope.
If you have completed academic credits at the City University of New York (CUNY) in 2003 or later, you are not required to send a transcript because the Office of Graduate Admissions is able to obtain these transcripts internally.
Your international transcripts must be evaluated by a professional agency recognized by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services. Evaluations must include course-by-course analysis indicating the type of degree received, the U.S. equivalency of the degree, the graduation date, and a cumulative grade point average. This will help us understand your educational background and academic credentials. Allow plenty of time between the evaluation and the application deadline, especially if you are currently residing outside of the United States and require a student visa.
If you received your baccalaureate (undergraduate) degree or master’s (graduate) degree from a country where English is not the only official language, you must submit an official score from TOEFL, IELTS, Pearson, or Duolingo. To be considered official, your score must be sent directly from the testing administrator from an assessment within the past two years. We only accept TOEFL or IELTS scores that are sent electronically by your test location. Our ETS Institution code is 2046. If you are submitting Pearson or Duolingo scores, ask them to send the scores electronically to Brooklyn College CUNY Graduate Admissions.
You are required to submit two letters of recommendation for most programs. Note that some programs may require three letters of recommendation. Consult your program website for more information about the requirements. We strongly encourage you to electronically submit letters of recommendation through our online application.
Most programs require a typewritten, two- to three-page statement explaining your purpose in undertaking graduate study in your intended program. This is your opportunity to inform us about your goals, interests, and career plans as they relate to your intended academic study. Some programs additionally require essays or writing samples. For details, consult the program instructions.
A copy of your most recent résumé is required by some programs.
You may need to submit a portfolio of creative materials (artwork, videos, or manuscript) to some programs. Consult the program instructions for details. Documents greater than 4096 KB cannot be uploaded with the online application and should be submitted via e-mail.
The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required for a number of graduate programs. We only accept GRE scores that are sent electronically by your test location. Our Institution Code is 2046. View our admissions requirements for details.
The Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is required by the M.S. Accounting program. We only accept GMAT scores that are sent electronically by your test location. Our Institution Code is 2046.
