What is Pathways to Degree Completion?

Pathways FAQ

Pathways establishes a new system of general education requirements and new transfer guidelines across CUNY — and by doing so reinforces CUNY’s educational excellence while making it easier to transfer between CUNY colleges.

CUNY’s Pathways approach to General Education has several components:

  • The 30-credit Common Core
  • The 12-credit College Option
  • Identification of transferable gateway courses into many of CUNY's largest majors.
