CUNY Transfer Policy

If you have graduated from a CUNY community college and would like to apply to a CUNY four-year college, you must complete a Transfer Admission Application. Admission to a CUNY four-year college is guaranteed, although not necessarily to the program or college of your first choice, if you have earned an Associate in Arts, Associate in Sciences and Associate in Applied Sciences degree with a 2.00 cumulative grade point average or higher.

If you have graduated or will graduate as a part of the CUNY Justice Academy, you do not need to fill out a Transfer Admission Application; for more information visit http://www.jjay.cuny.edu/cuny-justice-academy

SUNY Transfer Policy

The SUNY Transfer Guarantee Program pledges that “A New York State resident who wishes to transfer from a State University of New York two-year college, including all community colleges throughout the state, and who possesses, or who will have, an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree at the time of transfer, is guaranteed an opportunity to continue education on a full-time basis at a senior campus of the University.” All other students, with or without a degree, may apply for admission to SUNY units but the guarantee does not extend to them. For more information visit www.suny.edu

Private College Transfer Policies

Students who wish to transfer to a private college should check the websites, catalogs, and directories of the college they wish to attend.

Articulation Agreements

A transfer articulation agreement is a written contract between Kingsborough Community College and a four-year college or university that contains agreed upon courses or programs that will transfer over to that particular four-year institution. This is an assurance that if students complete courses or academic programs at Kingsborough with satisfactory grades (as specified by the receiving institutions), apply and are accepted to the four-year institution, those completed courses or programs will be applied toward the baccalaureate degree before transferring to a four-year college.

Kingsborough maintains, and continually updates and expands, its transfer articulation agreements; visit A-228 for further information about articulation agreements or go to the college website at http://www.kbcc.cuny.edu/Projects/transartic/Pages/welcome.aspx
