Transfer credit is granted from regionally accredited institutions, and for Advanced Placement courses.  The Admissions Office, in consultation with the Department Chair and/or Academic Advisement Center, reviews students’ transcripts, courses, programs, and other learning experiences to determine transfer credit. Additionally, the College may use multiple evaluations, including third-party reviews by qualified reviewers and recommendations from organizations experienced with such evaluations (e.g. A.P., ACE, CLEP, and CAEL). Students may also take department challenge exams.

Students who transfer into the College after having earned a City University Associate in Arts degree and Associate in Science are deemed to have automatically fulfilled the lower division liberal arts and science distribution requirements for a baccalaureate degree and are only required to complete the course in a discipline required by a senior college’s baccalaureate distribution requirements that were not part of the student’s associate degree programs.

Students who meet a common core or college option requirement in the Pathways Curriculum at one CUNY school can transfer these courses and the credits needed for their majors.

Please contact the Office of Admissions & Recruitment at Medgar Evers College for information about application deadlines.
