Admissions Requirements

Transfer Admission to York College is based on the strength of your post-secondary record(s). Your high school/secondary school record will be considered if you have completed fewer than 30 college credits.

Transfer students seeking admission are invited to apply online at www.cuny.edu/prepare. A complete application will consist of the following:

  • $70 application fee (check or money order)
  • Official transcripts from each college or post-secondary institution attended.
  • Transfer to the SEEK Program is only possible for students who participated in SEEK, College Discovery, EOP or HEOP at a prior institution.

Students who already hold a baccalaureate degree from an institution, and who wish to pursue a second degree, must apply to York as transfer students.  

If accepted, a second-degree student must complete a minimum of 40 credits at York College, in addition to the General Education Requirements. Applicants from regionally accredited senior colleges are exempt from all skills tests and General Education Requirements. 

At least 75% of the course requirements of the major program of the second degree must be completed at York.
