Entering Transfer Students

The number of Pathways courses that you will be required to take at Brooklyn College will depend on the number of transfer credits that are accepted after review of your transcript(s) by the Transfer Student Services Center. 

If you have an A.A. or A.S. degree:

Requirements for the Required Core and Flexible Core are fulfilled. You must fulfill two courses in the College Option from different areas in the CORC 3000 level.

If you have an AAS degree:

You must complete any requirements of the Required Core and Flexible Core not completed through transfer. You must also fulfill two courses in the College Option from different areas in the CORC 3000 level.

If you transfer more than 30 credits with no associate's degree

You must complete any requirements of the Required Core and Flexible Core not completed through transfer. You must also fulfill two courses in the College Option from different areas in the CORC 3000 level and one additional course from any of these areas: a course in a language or literature other than English offered by the departments of Classics, Judaic Studies, or Modern Languages and Literatures (all prerequisites apply) or an additional course from the Required Core Life and Physical Sciences or any Flexible Core course that you have not already used to fulfill the Flexible Core requirements.

If you transfer 30 or fewer credits

You must complete any requirements of the Required Core and Flexible Core not completed through transfer. You must also fulfill four courses in the College Option, including two courses from different areas in the CORC 3000 level and two courses from any of these areas: a course in a language or literature other than English offered by the departments of Classics, Judaic Studies, or Modern Languages and Literatures (all prerequisites apply) or an additional course from the Required Core Life and Physical Sciences or  any Flexible Core course that you have not already used to fulfill the Flexible Core requirements.

 Note: If you have fulfilled College Option course requirements in a previous CUNY baccalaureate program, your College Option requirement at Brooklyn College will be reduced.
