Community College Graduates
To earn the bachelor's degree at Lehman, Associate Degree graduates from any accredited college need to complete the courses required for the major, two upper-division General Education Integration (College Option) courses, two writing-intensive courses, and elective courses as needed to meet the minimum 120-credit requirement. These students will generally need only 60 credits to complete the Lehman bachelor's degree.
Students transferring fewer liberal arts and science credits to Lehman from their Associate Degree programs may need more than 60 Lehman credits to complete requirements for a bachelor's degree. Students transferring without a degree from CUNY Associate Degree programs will receive General Education credit for courses taken which meet Pathways requirements. All transfer students must meet New York State education regulations which mandate a minimum of 90 liberal arts and sciences credits for the B.A., 60 credits for the B.S., and 30 for the B.F.A. and B.B.A.
