If a Kingsborough Community College course is either not being offered or is closed, students may take the course on permit at other colleges throughout CUNY. Students may apply for an ePermit by using self-service in CUNYfirst.

To be eligible to take a course on permit at another CUNY college:

  • Students must have passed all three CUNY/ACT Freshmen Skills Assessment Tests.
  • Students must have all immunizations required by the Home College.
  • Students must have no negative service indicators (stops) on their record.
  • Students must have a 2.0 (or higher) cumulative grade point average.
  • Students must currently be enrolled and in attendance at Kingsborough Community College.
  • Non-Degree students and first semester students (i.e., freshmen or transfer) are not eligible to take a course on permit.
  • Course(s) must transfer back towards a KCC degree. Students must include both host college course(s) and home college equivalent course(s) descriptions on their ePermit application.
  • Students may only take the course(s) for which they have received permission.
  • Approval of permit requests remains with academic department Chairpersons. If a request is denied, the student is notified by email of the reason for the denial.
  • Be sure to arrange for an official transcript to be sent from the "host" college, upon course(s) completion, to:

                The Office of the Registrar, Room A-101
                Kingsborough Community College
                2001 Oriental Boulevard
                Brooklyn, NY 11235
                ATTN: Transfer Credit Evaluation 

  • All credits and grades of courses taken at the host institution on permit will be transferred to a student’s record and included in the cumulative grade point average and transfer credit accumulation. (NOTE: The maximum number of transfer credits is 30.)
  • If the number of course credits assigned by the host college and the home college are not the same, students will receive the lesser number of credits for the course.
