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.General Pathways Transfer Facts
Please note AS and AAS programs may require additional Common Core courses when transferring to a CUNY College

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
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.
