Transfer Students


Students transferring from colleges outside of CUNY must take the reading, writing, and mathematics skills assessment tests, unless they have an exemption, as outlined below. Students transferring from another CUNY college must have their skills test results transmitted to the Testing Center through the University’s UAPC system. CUNY regulations prohibit the acceptance of assessment test scores in the form of paper transcripts or similar records. Students whose testing records are incomplete in the UAPC system must contact the CUNY College from which they are transferring to have their test records updated in UAPC. To avoid delays, this should be done well in advance of registration. Transfer students from other CUNY colleges should also be aware that passing a remedial or developmental course in another college is not the same as passing the associated CUNY assessment tests.
