    Pathways establishes general education requirements and transfer guidelines across CUNY.

    In Fall 2013, CUNY implemented the Pathways initiative across its undergraduate colleges. Pathways has established a system of general education requirements and transfer guidelines across CUNY--and by doing so has reinforced CUNY's educational excellence while easing student transfer between CUNY colleges.

    Students who entered CUNY prior to Fall 2013 should contact Student Advising Services to discuss their specific program requirements; contact your Advising Team by clicking “Ask an Advisor” on My LaGuardia, or visit B-102.


  • How Credits Transfer?

    Pathways is designed to make it easier for you to transfer from one CUNY college to another. When you’ve fulfilled a Common Core or College Option requirement at one CUNY school, those requirements will be met at any other CUNY school; AP credits and non-CUNY credits may also count toward your Common Core or College Option requirements. Certain CUNY majors can easily transfer their major credits.

    General Pathways Transfer Facts

    • Courses passed for credit at any CUNY college will transfer for credit at any other CUNY college.
    • Courses that fulfill a Required Common Core requirement at any CUNY college will transfer for Required Common Core credit at any other CUNY college.
    • Courses that fulfill a Flexible Common Core requirement at any CUNY college will transfer for Flexible Common Core credit at any other CUNY college.
    • Courses that fulfill a College Option requirement at any CUNY college will transfer for College Option credit at any other CUNY college.
    • Courses that are designated as "Gateway" courses into a major will transfer for major credit at any other CUNY college that offers the major.
