How Credits Transfer

Hunter College offers a very generous transfer credit policy. Unfortunately, we do not offer a pre-admission transfer credit evaluation. The official transfer credit evaluation is completed only for students who have been admitted and committed to attending Hunter College only. However, we want you to be able to get an idea as early as possible., so please review information below.
