Macaulay students enroll as undergraduates in one of eight CUNY colleges.
They take most of their courses at their home campus where they can meet with advisors and other students in the campus’s honors lounge.
We strongly urge any interested student to explore our 8 senior CUNY colleges before applying to Macaulay.
Macaulay Honors students receive a uniquely broad, interdisciplinary undergraduate experience that’s customized for their interests and abilities. They earn a degree conferred jointly by Macaulay and their home campus.
For Macaulay students, who spend most of their days on their home campus, coming together to create and host student activities offers new opportunities to learn.
