higher GPA requirements. Please check with the college of your choice for more information:
What are the requirements for transferring to a SUNY or private college?
Requirements for transferring to a SUNY or private college vary. A student graduating
with a 2.0 GPA will be eligible to transfer to many colleges; however, some colleges
with selective programs may require a 2.5 GPA or higher. It is highly recommended
that you complete your Associates degree before transferring. Students need to research
the transfer admissions requirements for each college they are considering: www.suny.edu/student
What are Articulation Agreements?
An Articulation Agreement is a written partnership that has been established between
a 4-year college and Kingsborough that guarantees that specific courses will transfer
to a particular college. It's an assurance that if a student completes certain courses
at Kingsborough with satisfactory grades, these courses will be applied toward their
baccalaureate degree. For a list of the transfer articulation agreements, click here.
What is the difference between transferring with an Associate's Degree or without
an Associate's Degree?
One of the advantages of transferring with an Associate degree is that CUNY and most
SUNY senior colleges, will guarantee acceptance of 60 credits. Private colleges are
also likely to grant more credits to Associate Degree holders. If you transfer before
obtaining the associate degree, you are not under any transfer credit guarantee, unless
you have taken courses under the CUNY Pathways Common Core.
