Evaluation of Transfer Courses

The Hunter College Office of Admissions prides itself on the ease and convenience of its transfer course evaluation process. Academic records are evaluated for transfer course equivalencies after a student has been admitted and has confirmed their intent to enroll at Hunter. The records are then reviewed on a course-by-course basis to determine course equivalencies. Every effort is made to accept the maximum number of credits possible.

  • 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). The maximum total number of credits that may be transferred from other accredited Bachelor degree-granting institutions to Hunter College is 90. There is a 70-credit maximum on the number of credits that may be transferred from Associate degree-granting institutions. Students with an A.A., A.S. or A.A.S. degree from a CUNY college should be awarded 60 transfer credits (Note: To transfer 60 credits, all courses must adhere to the policies outlined above). 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 they have also been accepted in the Nursing Program), and medical professional training, courses used to satisfy high school graduation requirements, among others.

    Credit Given by Exam
    Credits and course exemptions are given to students who present satisfactory scores on the CLEP and the College Board's Advanced Placement program. Satisfactory scores are determined by the College's respective academic departments. An official score report must be sent from the College Board to the Admissions Office for an evaluation. For the exams and scores recognized by Hunter College, please see: AP Exams; CLEP Exams.

    Hunter College recognizes and awards credit for International Baccalaureate higher-level (HL) exams with scores of 5 or better for year long courses (No credit will be given for Standard Level Exams).

    Official IB, AP and CLEP scores must be sent to the Office of Admissions. Updated official college transcripts, which include courses taken via the CUNY College Now program, should also be sent to:
