Transfer Credit Evaluation Guidelines
- Bronx Community College (BCC) will accept a maximum of 30 transfer credits from a regionally accredited institution (or international equivalent) toward a 60-credit associate degree. BCC may consider granting credit for coursework from non-regionally accredited institutions via prior learning assessment. For prior learning assessment guidelines and information, please click here.
- Only undergraduate college-level courses will be evaluated for transfer credits. Courses that do not carry full college credit (e.g., remedial, college prep, etc.) are not transferrable.
- Students should not repeat transfer courses unless advised by their Academic Departments in accord with published policies.
- Grades of transferred courses will not be included in the BCC GPA.
- Students transferring credits from CUNY colleges can receive transfer credit for courses completed with any passing grade.
- Students transferring credits from colleges outside of CUNY must have earned a grade of “C” or above in order for courses to be accepted at BCC.
- Students who have completed an Advanced Placement (AP) exam with a score of 3 or higher are eligible for credit per these equivalencies.
- For the full BCC transfer credit policy, please see section 10 of the codification of BCC Academic Rules and Regulations. For additional information about transfer credit and the CUNY Pathways Core, including appeals, please click here.
- Exceptions and clarifications to these rules may apply to programs such as Nursing and Radiologic Technology. Students should consult with each academic program for additional information, as well as with the detailed policies found in the Academic Rules and Regulations.
- The total number of credits allowed toward a 60-credit associate degree by BCC may not exceed 30, regardless of whether the courses were taken at other institutions before admission, during attendance at, or after leaving BCC. For readmitting students, a 15 credit terminal limitation applies as well.
International students have to submit proof of graduation from an accredited secondary school or a foreign equivalent, a complete and accurate chronological outline of their previous school or university transcripts together with a certified English translation.
Students who apply for readmission after earning credit at another college in their absence from BCC must submit an official transcript to the Transfer Evaluation office for review.
Adjustments to Transfer Credit Evaluation
A student’s transfer credit evaluation may be revised due to a number of factors, including academic department approvals or change of major. Students should contact the Transfer Evaluation office with any questions.
A student transfer credit evaluation is made based on the specific program of study (major) at the time of acceptance to the college. If a student change his/her plan of study, their transfer credit evaluation may need to be reviewed and adjusted.
