Residency Requirement

To be eligible for a degree, a student must complete a minimum of 80 credits at the City College of New York, or they must complete the last 30 credits of their degree at City College. In addition, at least 60% of the major must be completed in residency at City College. As per CUNY Policy, the City College residency requirement does not apply to CUNY BA students, whose residency requirement is completion of a minimum of 30 credits of coursework in CUNY as a CUNY BA student.  All transfer students and second degree students (including those who are graduates of City College) are subject to the residency requirement. Graduates of City College who return for a second degree may not use coursework completed under the first degree to meet the residency requirement for a second degree from City College.
