  • How Credits Transfer


    Pathways is designed to make it easier for you to transfer from one CUNY college to another. When you’ve fulfilled a Common Core or College Option requirement at one CUNY school, those requirements will be met at any other CUNY school; AP credits and non-CUNY credits may also count toward your Common Core or College Option requirements. Certain CUNY majors can easily transfer their major credits.

  • College Option Credits

  •  CUNY Associate Degree Students
    • 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
     CUNY Bachelor's Degree Students

    Students can transfer the College Option credits they earn in a bachelor's degree program at one CUNY college toward their College Option requirement at any other CUNY college.

    For example: If you complete 6 College Option credits at Baruch College and transfer to Queens College, you will need to complete only 6 more College Option credits at Queens College to fulfill the 12-credit requirement.

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


    On transferring into a CUNY college, that college will determine whether any of the courses the student took before transferring fulfill (or partially fulfill) any of the College Option requirements.

    If the student later transfers to another CUNY college, that college will respect the initial CUNY college's decision about how many College Option credits were fulfilled before the transfer.

    Students who have earned a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited and recognized institution of higher education and who transfer to another CUNY college will be deemed to have automatically fulfilled the College Option requirements for a CUNY degree.

     

     Non-CUNY Bachelor's Degree Students
    Students transferring into a CUNY bachelor's program from a non-CUNY bachelor's program will be required to complete 12 College Option credits.
