The following rules govern the evaluation of transfer credit:
Credit is usually granted for a course from a college or university accredited by one of the following accrediting bodies if the description of that course matches that of a similar course offered by Lehman College: Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools/Commission on Higher Education; New England Association of Schools and Colleges/ Commissions on Institutions of Higher Education; North Central Association of Colleges and Schools; Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges; Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/Commission on Colleges; Western Association of Schools and Colleges/ Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges; Western Association of Schools and Colleges/ Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities; Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges; Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Commission for Nursing Accreditation Education and accreditation by the New York State Board of Regents and the Commissioner of Education of the colleges currently listed on the NYSED college accreditation site.
Credit for a course at a postsecondary institution not accredited by one of the above-mentioned accrediting bodies, whose description matches that of a similar course offered by Lehman College may be granted with departmental approval.
Courses from non-accredited institutions that do not have a Lehman equivalent will not transfer.
Courses completed outside the City University system with a grade of D or below will not be credited by Lehman College. They will be included, however, in the cumulative index to determine an applicant's eligibility for admission.
Students must satisfy the requirement that at least 30 credits as well as at least half of the credits in the major or in an interdisciplinary program, minor or certificate be completed at Lehman College. (See the definition of credits in residence in the section on "Degree Requirements" in this Bulletin, under the heading "Credit Requirements.")
