  • Course equivalency information will be entered in both the University Course Guide database and the website.
  • When the receiving college awards transfer credit for either a block of courses or for an entire program rather than for individual courses, it may not be necessary to list individual course equivalencies.
  • This agreement is deemed to be consistent with the CUNY Pathways General Education curriculum, and will be updated whenever necessary in keeping with changes in the Pathways curriculum. Queens College requires 6-7 credits of additional Pathways classes as part of the College Option, which includes a literature and a language requirement, as well as two Writing Intensive (W) units, with a minimum of one in residency. Writing Units may overlap with other requirements. According to the specifics in this agreement, students will complete a minimum of 60 credits at each institution; however, students who transfer into Queens with more than 60 credits must complete at least 45 credits at Queens College to earn a Queens College degree.
