About Macaulay Honors College

Ranked as one of the top ten honors colleges in the nation, Macaulay provides exceptional students with a rigorous education drawing on the vast academic resources of the nation’s largest urban university and the rich cultural diversity of New York City. Our students represent the top 4% of the 13,000+ incoming freshmen on eight CUNY campuses, including Baruch, Brooklyn, City, Hunter, John Jay, Lehman, and Queens Colleges, and the College of Staten Island.

With close guidance from a team of dedicated advisors, Macaulay students design a highly personalized academic program with access to classes in more than 400 majors across the CUNY system. All Macaulay students must either study abroad, participate in an approved internship, or conduct independent research. Underwritten entirely by private philanthropy, Opportunities Funds support these activities by providing students with dedicated travel and fellowship funds. In addition, Macaulay students who are residents of New York State receive a full-tuition merit scholarship.
