B.I.14 - RESOLUTION ON CREATING AN EFFICIENT TRANSFER SYSTEM

“The City University of New York experiences large student transfer flows among all of its undergraduate colleges. To enhance transfer students’ progress toward degree completion, CUNY must insure that students’ credits earned from any CUNY college transfer smoothly and efficiently to all other CUNY colleges.

stem variant courses
STEM Variant courses
  • Courses to be included in Common Core are 3 hours, 3 credits. There are some approved exceptions.
  • Some courses in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics disciplines with more than 3 hours and/or credits can be used to fulfill Common Core requirements to facilitate transfer in some majors. These are STEM variant courses.
  • Students can select a STEM variant course to fulfill a Common Core requirement.
