  • College Option Requirement

    If you plan to transfer to a bachelor’s program at CUNY you need to complete the College Option Requirement in addition to the Common Core Requirement. Please note you will not complete the College Option requirements until you transfer to a baccalaureate program.

    The number of credits needed to satisfy the College Option Requirement range between 6 to 12. The number of credits you need to earn to fulfill the College Option Requirement depends on whether you transferred into the college and how many credits you had at the time of transfer.

    Colleges may have different College Option requirements for different areas of study; in some cases, College Option requirements also may fulfill the requirements for your major.

    Here are the College Option Requirements you might need depending on how many credits you have earned here at LaGuardia:

    • Earned Associate Degree -- 6 College Option credits required
    • Earned More Than 30 Credits -- 9 College Option credits required
    • Earned 30 or Fewer Credits -- 12 College Option credits required

    Learn more about the College Option Requirement on the CUNY Pathways website.
