Enrolling In Pathways

Who is Affected by Pathways?

You are automatically enrolled in Pathways if you are a:

  • Freshman
  • Transfer student
  • Re-admitted student out for more than one semester (excluding summer)

 You can choose to OPT-IN to Pathways:

Continuing students and students who entered Hostos Community College prior to Fall 2013 but were absent for only ONE semester excluding summer, can choose whether they wish to complete their existing degree requirements or opt-in to Pathways. Students who wish to change to Pathways, must first schedule an appointment with an academic advisor to determine if they should opt-in to Pathways. If a student wishes to opt-in to Pathways, they will be required to sign a Pathways Inititative Contract. After opting into Pathways students cannot change back to their previous degree requirements.

If you are a continuing student who chooses to complete the existing degree requirements that were in place when you entered Hostos, once you complete your degree and transfer to any other CUNY college, you will be in compliance with the Common Core requirements. You will also need to complete the College Option general education requirements of 6-12 credits that must be taken at a CUNY senior college.
