How Credits Transfer
Pathways makes it easier for students to transfer from one CUNY college to another. When a student has met 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 a student’s Common Core or College Option requirements.  In Pathways, students in certain CUNY majors can easily transfer their major credits.

General Pathways Transfer Facts

  • Courses passed for credit at any CUNY college will transfer for credit at any other CUNY college.
  • Courses that fulfill a Required Common Core requirement at any CUNY college will transfer for Required Common Core credit at any other CUNY college.
  • Courses that fulfill a Flexible Common Core requirement at any CUNY college will transfer for Flexible Common Core credit at any other CUNY college.
  • Courses that fulfill a College Option requirement at any CUNY college will transfer for College Option credit at any other CUNY college.
  • Courses that are designated as "Gateway" courses into a major will transfer for major credit at any other CUNY college that offers the major.

Transfer Students
Students who transfer to Medgar Evers College must complete the 30-credit Common Core.

  • If a student transfers having completed 30 or less total credits, the student is required to complete the Common Core and the Medgar Evers College Option.
  • If a student transfers without an associate’s degree but with more than 30 credits of successful coursework, the student must complete the Common Core and 9 credits from the Medgar Evers College Option.  Some of the courses already completed may satisfy parts of the Common Core.  All Common Core courses successfully completed at one CUNY College automatically fulfill the Common Core courses at all CUNY Colleges.
  • If a student transfers with an associate’s degree from any regionally accredited college, the student is required to complete only 6 credits from the College Option.
