  • GPA: Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 to be eligible for graduation. Nursing requires a GPA of 2.5 to be eligible for graduation
  • SKILLS TEST: Effective May 1997, CUNY requires that all students pass the writing and reading basic skills test as a graduation requirement from all community colleges. In addition, students who wish to transfer to senior colleges must also pass the mathematics skills test prior to transferring (1985 policy). See Assessment for more details)
  • CPE: On November 22, 2010, the CUNY Board of Trustees voted to eliminate the CPE as a degree requirement for all previous, current, and future CUNY students.
  • SSD 1000: Effective fall 2003, all first-time freshman liberal arts majors must take SSD 1000: Freshmen Orientation course.
  • Writing Intensive (WI): Effective Fall 2003, all entering students are required to take two (2) Writing Intensive courses prior to graduation. These specially designated sections are designed to help students improve their writing skills along with their understanding of course material. Through both formal and informal writing assignments, students will strengthen their writing proficiencies as they become familiar with writing unique to particular disciplines. It is expected that, through these intensive, meaningful opportunities for writing, students will be able to become better writers and communicators, skills highly valued both in college and in the job market.
