More NYC Students Are Ready for College
The College Readiness Index (CRI) is the percentage of students who, by the August after their fourth year
in high school, have met CUNY’s standards for college readiness in English and mathematics. Students can
meet these standards by reaching certain scores on the Regents, SAT, ACT or CUNY Assessment Tests.
In 2017, changes to CUNY’s remediation requirements have led to significant increases in the college
readiness rate.
