Transfer of Credits
The number of college credits transferred to Medgar Evers College will be evaluated and determined by the Transfer Evaluator, or an academic advisor within the Student Advocacy and Support Services Center (SASC) in consultation with the appropriate School and Department to which the student is applying. Most evaluations are available prior to registration.
A maximum of 30 credits may be transferred toward an associate degree. A maximum of 90 credits may be transferred toward a Baccalaureate degree.
All courses for which a student has earned a grade of "C" or better at a comparably accredited institution will be considered for transfer. "C" and "D" grades from other CUNY units may also be transferable. "C" and "D" grades are not transferable in departmental requirements or English courses. Courses taken at institutions not accredited by a comparable regional accrediting association are not transferable toward any of our degree programs.
Full Faith in Credit
Medgar Evers College provides students possessing associate degrees from comparably accredited institutions with full faith in credit for previous course work and will provide upper class/junior status upon transfer. In addition, Liberal Arts and Science courses successfully completed in any City University of New York college are transferable. Credit will be granted for these courses in all departments and programs, and recognized for the fulfillment of degree requirements irrespective of whether the student has fulfilled the requirements for the Associates degree.
Based on a fair and reasonable evaluation of a student’s transcript, students may be asked to complete a course in a specific discipline required by an academic department that was not part of the student’s associate degree program. In such cases, all course work required will be applied towards the total number of credits required for the baccalaureate.
Students who pursue a major that departs from their associate degree program of studies and which requires a sequence of pre-requisite courses prior to course work in the major, and students who change their major after they are enrolled in a senior college, should expect that completion of their bachelor’s degree may require more than 120 credits. For additional credit evaluation criteria please see the "Transfer of Credits" section of the College's catalog.
In addition to the criteria outlined above international applicants must follow the criteria outlined on our International Student section of the admissions web page. To review the criteria, please click the following link – International Student Admissions.
