Transfer Students and General Education

If a student enters as a transfer student starting fall 2013 or after, the number of Common Core and College Option courses depends on multiple factors, including the transfer institution; whether or not the student earned a degree before transferring; the number of credits earned, and how our testing office evaluates the transfer credits. After the credits have been evaluated, the credits are posted on the student’s John Jay record. Students should check with an academic advisor after their transfer credits have been posted so that the requirements can be clarified.
