    Hello, if anyone is still following this post I am a prospective nursing student with CUNY/SUNY questions..namely:

    In order to gain acceptance into CUNY Hunter, SUNY Downstate, or CUNY Lehman - do you have to already be enrolled/taking your prequisites at that college?

    I live on Long Island and am taking my pre req's at Suny Suffolk CC, is it pointless to even apply to the above schools if I'm not already enrolled?

    Thank you!

    Heid5469- I'm not sure about the other colleges but in terms of CUNY Hunter you do not need to be an enrolled student taking classes there. You can take your classes elsewhere and then transfer over the credits but the only catch is you need to make sure that the classes will transfer over. I do however advise you to look into each individual program and see what the requirement is for how long you need to be enrolled in the school before you apply to the actual nursing program. For instance I believe you need to be a hunter student for at least one semester before you apply to the program. Good luck!!

    Correct.

    Every single CUNY, SUNY and probably many other post secondary two and four year schools require one be a matriculated student for a period of time before applying to their nursing and other programs as well. This prevents persons from "program shopping" and prevents those already enrolled full or part time at the college or university from being displaced.

    Being as that may given the high competition at both Hunter's and Lehaman's BSN programs it is not uncommon for students their to take some classes elsewhere and transfer, so one assumes it works the other way round as well. As previous poster stated just make quite sure the credits will transfer. If at all possible visit the campus directly and speak with someone in nursing or the registar's office. You want it crystal clear and certain before spending money, effort and time what is required.

    Hello!I have a question about pre-reqs: I'm currently attending NYU continuing education and planning to transfer to their nursing program. I've heard it's pretty though to get in, but I'll give it a shot. If not I was thinking of taking my pre-reqs at Hunter.Any info about them? Do you have to be registered towards a degree to take the pre-reqs? How hard is it to get accepted into their program if I decide to stay there?I'm paying an arm and a leg now at NYU and not sure I can afford the nursing program there. I don't have a bachelor so I would like to get the full BSN.Thanks for all your help and suggestions!Kika
    Hunter is pretty affordable compared to nyu. Yu will save a lot of money.

    Irony is many Hunter students take classes elsewhere and transfer the credits back. Apparently this is often due to difficulty in getting what one needs at at time that suits one's schedule.

    Make no mistake about it, CUNY offers tremendous value for money, but that is also why so many of their majors/classes are packed.
