CUNY’s Policy on the Submission of Fraudulent Documents in Support of an Application for Admissions.

An applicant for admission to any college of CUNY who submits, as part of an admission application, a document that is found to be fraudulent before an admission decision is made or before the applicant has enrolled shall be barred from enrolling in any college of CUNY for a period of five years. Please be sure to complete a transfer application if you have attended ANY institution after high school and be sure to list all institutions attended after high school (including those completed outside of the country) regardless if the education is related or not to your college major at LaGuardia. For more information on this CUNY policy refer to about/administration/offices/student-affairs/policies/Submission OfFraudulentDocuments.pdf

Students Who May Pose a Risk to the College

LaGuardia reserves the right to deny admission to any student if, in its judgment, the presence of that student on campus poses an undue risk to the safety or security of the College or the College community. That judgment will be based on an individualized determination taking into account any information the College has about a student’s criminal record and the particular circumstances of the College, including the presence of a child care center, a public school or public school students on the campus.
