When you complete the on-line application, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to submit these materials.
First, After you apply to the College of Staten Island, you will receive an email inviting you to claim your CUNYfirst account. When you log-in to the CUNYfirst Student Center, you will see the CUNYfirst ID number, an 8-digit number, at the top of your self service screen. You will need this number to proceed with the Verrazzano application.
Second, complete this application form, using your contact information, not that of a parent or other relative.
Third, you need to
- submit two confidential, typed letters of recommendation from high school counselors or teachers (letters can be sent separately to our office via email or hard copy)
- submit a resume listing work, extracurricular, community, and service activities (including dates of participation), honors and awards received
- submit a high school transcript
- submit one essay, one page maximum, telling us a little bit about yourself. Don’t just reiterate your resume or transcript; rather, describe who you are or who you want to be. What makes you tick? What are you passionate about? We would like to get a sense of you as the unique person you are.
