The Queensborough Community College Transfer Resource Center provides services that support students planning to transition to a four-year college upon completion of associate degree requirements. It is advised that students should become aware of the procedures necessary for a smooth transition. It is never too early to start planning to transfer.
The acceptance into a specific program of study at a four-year college depends on selecting the appropriate program of study, the earned Grade Point Average (GPA) at Queensborough (high demand programs are more competitive and require a higher grade point average for admission) and the number of applicants for a particular program.
Our Resource Center in partnership with academy advisers, and student managers assists and supports students planning to transition to a baccalaureate degree program. We provide guidance as students’ transition to other colleges within the City University of New York (CUNY), the State University of New York (SUNY), and other public and independent colleges and universities.

Transfer agreements (alternatively known as articulation agreements) are arrangements between Queensborough Community College and four-year colleges or universities that maximize transfer credit to the four-year institution. These agreements list specific course requirements at Queensborough that are equivalent to the first two years of study at the baccalaureate-granting college or university. Students must graduate from Queensborough Community College to take full advantage of benefits outlined in the articulation and/or dual joint agreements.
Transfer What-If and Transfer Explorer
Transfer What-If is a feature within the DegreeWorks online degree audit system that is available to current Queensborough students. It lets students and their advisors see how courses taken at Queensborough, would transfer to another CUNY institution and apply towards a desired area of study. Transfer What-If can make planning for a transition among CUNY colleges easier. It also helps advisers to keep students who plan to transition to a specific program at another CUNY college on track, thus accelerating degree completion. Students can access Transfer What-If once signed into the online degree audit system.
Transfer Explorer gives all students fast and easy access to information on how any CUNY course offered will transfer to any other CUNY college. For additional information on these transfer tools and transfer policies, please contact the Transfer Resource Center and/or view the Transfer Resource Center website.
