Transfer Policies Pertaining to Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree Programs
1. All City University of New York Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree recipients shall be:
> given priority for transfer over non-University students seeking transfer,
> accepted as matriculated students at a senior college of the City University,
> upon transfer to a parallel professional program5 granted a minimum of 60 credits toward a baccalaureate degree and be required to complete only the difference between the 60 credits granted and the total credits normally required for the degree. 6
> upon transfer to a senior college liberal arts curriculum or related professional program in the same field as the associate degree program, granted a minimum of 60 credits toward a baccalaureate degree and follow a prepared course of study that will enable them to complete the baccalaureate degree within 60 to 72 credits (see note c).
2. Effective Fall 2000, when students transfer after completing a City University Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree, or prior to completion of the degree, the liberal arts and science courses they have completed will be deemed to have fulfilled discipline-specific distribution requirements for all baccalaureate programs on a discipline-by-discipline basis, with the exception that upper division coursework will not be recognized unless appropriate prerequisites have been satisfied.7
3. Based on a fair and reasonable evaluation of a students transcript at least nine (9) credits will be granted in the students major (including laboratory science). Note that this does not preclude a senior college from granting more than nine credits in the students major. (Students who change their major upon transfer may not have completed coursework that can be applied towards their new major.)
5 e.g., graduates of an AAS degree program in engineering technology transferring to a bachelors of engineering technology program.
6 Some associate and baccalaureate degree programs require more than 60 or 120 credits, respectively, due to accreditation or certification requirements.
7 The liberal arts and science distribution requirements for Associate in Applied Science degree programs do not satisfy all the requirements of baccalaureate programs.
