After you receive your letter of admission and accept your admission to the College, the Office of Testing Services will contact you directly if you are required to take a writing placement exam. Please note that the CUNY Assessment Test for Reading and Mathematics is no longer administered.
The CAT in Writing is a 90-minute written essay test in which students are asked to respond to a reading passage that they see for the first time when they sit for the test. Only students designated as ESL (non-native English speakers) will be required to take this exam.
