I am transferring to Hunter from a CUNY senior (4-year) college with 12 college option credits already fulfilled

Requirements for the Hunter Focus vary according to the type of program in which students matriculated at the beginning of their college careers. Students who first enrolled in a baccalaureate program have different requirements from those who initially enrolled in associate's degree programs. Transfer students should be sure to check with the Office of Advising Services to determine precisely which requirements apply. 

Students who have earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution are exempt from the Hunter Core Requirement and all concurrent requirements.  Otherwise, you need to complete the Hunter Core Requirement (HCR), as specified below:

CUNY Common Core (CCCR) (30 credits=10 courses)

CCCR Notes:

The Hunter Focus (College Option)  (0 credits=0 courses)

Students who transfer from a CUNY senior (4-year) college with 12 college option credits already fulfilled and who matriculate at Hunter College in fall 2013 or after will have fulfilled the Hunter Focus.

Concurrent Course Requirements

1.     Writing Intensive Courses

The ability to write clearly and persuasively is a valuable skill that is important for advanced study, professional advancement, and personal development.  Writing Intensive courses carry the designation “W” in the catalog and may be offered in any field.  Students who transfer to Hunter from a CUNY senior (4-year) college with a) fewer than 31 credits must complete 3 “W” designated courses, b) 31 – 59 credits must complete 2 “W” designated courses or c) 60 credits or more must complete 1 “W” designated course. These courses can be part of the Hunter Focus or any major or minor requirements, or electives. All “W” courses must be taken at Hunter College.

2.     Courses for Pluralism and Diversity

This group of courses addresses topics that help students broaden their horizons and gain new perspectives. The Pluralism and Diversity courses are grouped into four categories (A, B, C, and D):

One class in each category is required for students who transfer to Hunter from a CUNY senior (4-year) college with fewer than 31 credits. Two courses from Groups A, B or C, but not two courses from the same group, are required for students transferring to Hunter with 31 or more credits. Any one course with a Pluralism and Diversity designation can satisfy only one Pluralism and Diversity category. A course with a Pluralism and Diversity designation may also carry a “W” designation and may fulfill any other requirement.
