Accessing the Equivalent Course Feature

CUNY schools list courses differently. For example, College Algebra at QCC is listed as MA-119, but at John Jay the equivalent course is listed as MAT 105. Students may inquire what the equivalent course may be at an alternative CUNY by following the instructions to access the Transfer Explorer (T-REX). This allows CUNY and non-CUNY students/faculty/staff to view the benefits of T-REX with an updated and integrated system.

Here is how you can access the course equivalent feature:

  • Go to the Transfer Explorer site

  • Click on View Course Equivalencies

  • Select the Sending College (any college(s) where you would like to take the course)

  • Select the Receiving College (Queensborough Community College or where you would like to transfer the credit); then click Next (Select Disciplines)
  • Select the CUNY Subject(s); click Next (View Equivalencies)

  • Click on the "+" sign to see course details
