Why is this being done?
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.
