Located in Manhattan, Baruch College (officially, the Bernard M. Baruch College) is part of the City University of New York (CUNY) system. Founded in 1919, Baruch has its roots in the Free Academy, which was the first free public college in the country. Today, Baruch continues that mission to provide excellent, affordable education to one of the most diverse student bodies nationwide. Its programs are consistently recognized for making education accessible.
Ranked 110 nationwide, Baruch’s Zicklin School of Business and Marxe School of Public and International Affairs consistently earn top marks across the country. Baruch’s acceptance rate is 70%. The college enrolls more than 19,700 students, who speak over 100 languages and represent 155 countries. In-state tuition is $7,462 per year, plus fees; out-of-state tuition is $15,412 per year, plus fees. Baruch offers 29 undergraduate majors, 60 undergraduate minors, and 56 postgraduate programs. It follows a semester-based academic calendar.
Student life at Baruch is integrated in the New York City experience. While the Newman Vertical Campus, a 17-story building located on Lexington Avenue and 24th Street, gives students a central location for classes, research, recreation and more, students live, socialize, and learn across New York City. Countless historic and world-class attractions, museums, libraries, and galleries are practically within arm’s reach. Still, Baruch students build their own community. They participate in over 100 clubs and organizations and cheer on their athletes, who compete in the NCAA Division III.
