Since 1847, CUNY has welcomed students from around the world, nurtured their ambitions, and valued their academic and social contributions. The roster of CUNY students and alumni who have won some of our country’s most prestigious academic prizes and achieved distinction in their professional lives makes clear the enormous impact these students have on the University and our nation.

With 40 percent of our undergraduates born in another country, CUNY hosts the nation’s most extensive university-based legal assistance program for immigrants. Students, faculty and staff can avail themselves of its many services. Those with questions or concerns about their immigration status or travel abroad should contact CUNY Citizenship Now! at citizenshipnowinfo@cuny.edu.  International students can also contact their campus International Student Advisor.

CUNY will always remain committed to serving students from all nations, faiths, and walks of life. We proudly stand with our outstanding immigrant and international students pursuing their dreams in New York.
