As a transfer student at Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY), you can earn your associate, bachelor’s or master’s degree faster than you ever thought possible. Our accelerated programs and flexible credit transfer policy make transferring here simple—and rewarding:

  • Apply and enroll in any of our three semesters.
  • Transfer up to 12 credits toward your associate degree, up to 90 credits for bachelor’s degree work—and up to six credits for graduate programs—depending on program requirements. Credits are generally awarded for relevant and equivalent coursework at accredited colleges and universities with a grade of “C” for associate and undergraduate, and “B” for master’s degree, or better. An official transcript is required and only credits earned within five years will be accepted.
  • Articulation agreements with several community and private colleges make the transfer experience seamless.
  • Up to $8000 in Scholarships and financial aid available for eligible students.
  • There is no application fee undergraduate or graduate programs.

We Give Credit Where Credit Is Due: MCNY offers semester exemption or credits towards certain degrees for life and professional experience, military service as well as College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP) examinations.

Advanced Standing: Bachelor of Professional Studies students enrolled in the Audrey Cohen School for Human Services and Education with extensive professional experience and previous education may, after completing the first two semesters, apply for the Advanced Standing Option. In this rigorous process, students must document that they are able to relate the required bodies of knowledge to their workplace experience in accordance with the College’s requirements. The Advanced Standing Option enables the validation of prior college credits and work experience and may lead to course exemptions. See how our flexible credit policy can help you earn your degree faster. To arrange an evaluation of your transfer credits, contact the admissions office.
