The registrar’s office 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 City Tech. With some limitations, students may be granted credit for courses completed at other accredited colleges and universities that offer courses comparable in credit and content to those offered at NYCCT, provided satisfactory grades were received (i.e., “D” or better at any other CUNY unit; “C” or better at other institutions).
To earn an associate or baccalaureate degree at City Tech, students must complete a minimum of 34 CREDITS IN RESIDENCE 17 MUST BE IN THE MAJOR department. To earn baccalaureate honors a minimum of 60 credits must be completed in residence at NYCCT. For associate honors a minimum of 34 credits must be completed in Residence at NYCCT. The remaining credits needed to complete the degree may be transferred, provided they are approved for credit by NYCCT.
Prospective transfer students can get an approximation of the transfer credits they can expect by using the tools found at http://tipps.cuny.edu. CUNY General Education transfer policies can be found at: http://policy.cuny.edu/manual_of_general_policy/. To receive credit for courses taken at other accredited colleges and universities, students must have official transcripts on file in the registrar’s office. Student copies will not be accepted. All foreign language transcripts must be accompanied by a notarized affidavit attesting to the accuracy of the English translation. When credit is granted from another institution, the grade does not generate quality points toward the cumulative grade point average.
