Transfer Students from CUNY Community Colleges

Transfer students from CUNY community colleges who have earned an AA or AS degree are admitted to the college, awarded junior status and considered to have satisfied core course requirements. However, depending upon the major selected at Hunter, some students may need more than 60 additional credits in order to complete Hunter’s bachelor’s degree requirements. Transfer students from CUNY colleges who have not earned a two-year AA or AS degree and transfer students from non-CUNY colleges are awarded credit for previous work on a course-by-course basis. All transfer students, including those entering with CUNY AA and AS degrees, must fulfill the college’s foreign language requirement. 

The maximum total number of credits that may be transferred to Hunter College is 90. There is a 70-credit limit on the number of credits that may be transferred from two-year institutions.

Applicants are required to report and provide transcripts for all previous college coursework including coursework that was in progress at the time of application. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action and the denial of transfer credit.
