Transfer of Credits


Evaluation of Transfer Credits

Transfer credit will only be granted from regionally accredited institutions listed on the student’s admissions application. Failure to list all postsecondary institutions attended will subject a student to disciplinary action and a review of the admission decision. Credit is given only for courses taken at institutions that are accredited by one of the regional accrediting commissions in consultation with the appropriate School and department to which the student has been accepted.

The maximum number of credits that may be transferred toward a Baccalaureate degree is 90. The maximum number of credits that may be transferred toward the Associate degree is 30. All courses for which a student has a grade of “C” or better at an accredited institution will be considered for transfer. “C” and “D” grades from other CUNY schools may also be transferrable. “D” grades are not transferable in departmental requirements or English courses.

Transfer credit will not be granted for any remedial, developmental or ESL courses. Transfer students who have earned an associate degree from a regionally accredited college may have to complete more than 60 additional credits in order to complete the bachelor’s degree requirements. Transcript evaluations can only be performed for accepted students. Applicants are required to report and provide transcripts for all previous coursework taken after high school including coursework that was in progress at the time of application. Failure to do so may result in the denial of all transfer credit and suspension from CUNY.
