How To Register
CUNY Explorers is now offering both remote and in-person visit opportunities for 6th to 10th grade students (with the exception of D75 & D79 schools who can register students of all grade levels) as well as CBOs serving students in those grades.
All registrants must be aware of the following guidelines:
- For remote visits: A teacher must be present during the remote visit and monitor student behavior. CUNY staff are not responsible for behavior management. Unsafe behavior will lead to the cancellation of a session.
- For in-person visits: Please be aware that all schools visiting in person must adhere to campus COVID policies communicated by the Campus Coordinator. If not adhered to, the Campus Coordinator reserves the right to cancel the campus visit. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, campuses cannot provide lunch at this time.
As of 2/1/2023, registrants no longer have to submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination or PCR testing results. When you submit a confirmation form to register for a campus visit, either in-person or remote, you agree to adhere to the CUNY Explorers Cancellation Policy.
In-Person Cancellation Policy
To cancel a visit, you must contact the Campus Coordinator and receive confirmation of your cancellation. Our in-person visits require preparation from our Visit Guides and room reservations; therefore, cancellations for in-person visits must be made 2 weeks in advance. This gives us an opportunity to fill in the registration date.
Remote Cancellation Policy
Cancellations for remote visits must be made 1 week in advance by contacting the Campus Coordinator and receiving confirmation of your cancellation.
***Cancellations for remote and in-person campus visits are monitored throughout our campuses. If you cancel more than three times, whether at the same campus or across our campuses, CUNY Explorers reserves the right to refuse your registration for the 2023-2024 school year.
Fall registration will be made available on a rolling basis. Visits will begin in October 2023.
