Transferring with an Associate degree
It is recommended that students transfer to Lehman College once they have completed their Associate degree. Students transferring to Lehman College with an AA or AS degree with a GPA of 2.0 or higher will be considered to have met their lower level General Education requirements. Students transferring to Lehman with an A.A.S. degree will be required to complete the CUNY Pathways General Education Curriculum.
Transferring to Lehman without an Associate degree
While we encourage students to complete their Associate degree, some students choose to transfer to Lehman College before completing their Associate degree. In these cases, we suggest that students who can complete their Associate degree requirements during their first two semesters at Lehman College work with Advisors at both Lehman and Hostos Community College to ensure that students maximize opportunities to take Lehman courses that will apply to requirements at both colleges. Students who complete their Associate degree while enrolled at Lehman College via this reverse transfer process will have their lower-level General Education requirements reevaluated as an Associate degree transfer student.General Education requirements for non-Associate’s degree holders.
