Welcome to Baruch College!
Your first introduction to life at Baruch will be your New Student Orientation day. Your academic advisors and orientation leaders are looking forward to welcoming you and helping you navigate this exciting transition. Please review our website to learn more about Baruch’s Orientation program.
Transfer Orientation is scheduled from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM EST. You must arrive on time and stay for the duration of the program.
New transfer students will only have access to register for classes or schedule an appointment with an Academic Advisor after completing the orientation program.
Steps to Orientation
Step 1: Accept your offer of admission on CUNYfirst.
Step 2: Submit the $100 commitment deposit on CUNYfirst.
Step 3: Take any proficiency exam(s) that may be required based on your Testing Ticket. Newly admitted students no longer need to take the math placement exam. Previous coursework will be used towards placement.
Step 4: Set up your Baruch email.
Step 5: Check your Baruch email for your Orientation date confirmation, about one week after completing Steps 1 and 2. Students are automatically assigned the next available Orientation date.
Step 6: Review the Baruch curriculum and submit any necessary forms and documents prior to your Orientation day.
Step 7: Check your Baruch email for the ZOOM log in information two days before your Orientation date.
Step 8: Download the ZOOM app and set up your account.
Step 9: Log into ZOOM on time and plan to stay for the duration of the program, 10:00 am until 2:00 pm EST. We recommend using a computer rather than a phone or tablet to complete the orientation program.
