About Macaulay Honors College

The Class of 2014 was the tenth Macaulay Honors College class, and their admission marked the beginning of the college’s tenth anniversary celebrations. Macaulay recently admitted its largest class to date–the Class of 2015 with over 500 students. Founded in 2001 by Chancellor Matthew Goldstein, Macaulay Honors College has already become one of the nation’s leading honors colleges, offering an exceptional academic and co-curricular environment for future leaders of New York City—and beyond. Macaulay students enroll in one of seven CUNY senior colleges (Baruch, Brooklyn, City, Hunter, Lehman, Queens, or Staten Island). Through the unique Macaulay advising program, each student develops a coordinated, individualized academic program that includes research, global learning, graduate and professional mentoring, community engagement, and close faculty-student collaboration. Selected for their top high school records and leadership potential, Macaulay students are awarded a full-tuition merit scholarship, giving them the freedom to pursue their academic goals without financial burdens. Macaulay further enriches students’ academic experience by providing a laptop and technology support, a $7,500 study grant to pursue global learning and service opportunities, and a Cultural Passport that provides access to more than 200 museums, libraries and other treasures around New York City.
