Important Notes about completing the Degree Audit form and Receiving a certificate:
If you are planning to fulfill math or English requirements with courses taken at other schools, the transfer credit MUST be posted your Hunter record with the ENGL, MATH, and/or STAT label. If the credit is not posted on your Hunter transcript, please take a course description and a copy of the original institution’s transcript to the appropriate department (i.e. English, math). We cannot approve the degree audit without the proper credit indicated on the transcript.
In the column labeled “Course Title” please type/write the Hunter College Course title. If you received transfer credit for the math or English requirements, the Hunter College course title for which you have received the credit must be typed/written in the box. In the “Year Taken” column please write “transfer credit.”
If you have secured prior approval to apply specific courses to meet the minimum requirements for the Pre-Health Post-Baccalaureate Certificate please send an e-mail to email@example.com detailing your specific situation. The subject of your e-mail should read: Degree Audit Course Substitution.
