Transfer Credit Policy

In general, credits earned by taking college-level courses from other regionally accredited colleges and universities will transfer, provided that the courses are similar in scope and content to those offered for credit at Hunter College. Credits will be granted for courses with a grade of “C” or better (“D” or better at CUNY institutions). There is a 70-credit maximum on the number of credits that may be transferred from Associate degree-granting institutions. The maximum total number of credits that may be transferred from other accredited Bachelor degree-granting institutions to Hunter College is 90. The credit amount for each course remains the same when transferred. (Exception: Credits coming from a school using the quarter-hour will be converted to the semester hour using a .66 multiplication factor.) Grades do not transfer; the student’s grade point average at Hunter is calculated solely on the basis of work taken at Hunter College. The following courses do not transfer: ESL/Remedial/Developmental courses; Freshman orientation/experience courses; military training; firemen/police studies; EMT training; secretarial/office technology courses; hospitality management; pharmacological, Non-CUNY nursing courses (CUNY nursing courses are transferable for transfer students from CUNY community colleges who have earned an AA or AS degree and have also been accepted in the Nursing Program), medical professional training, and these Non-Transferable CUNY courses. 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.
