I was accepted to Queensborough on probation. What does that mean?
Based on your previous academic performance, the Admissions Committee accepted you on probation for one semester. This means that we recognize your potential for success in college but want to monitor your first semester, or more. During your first semester here, you must achieve a minimum of GPA of 2.0. The Admissions Review Committee will review your first semester record to determine your continued status. If this required GPA minimum is not met, you will lose your matriculated status and may only continue at the college only as a non-matriculated (non-degree) student.
Transfer students on probation are especially encouraged to take full advantage of the College’s academic support services, offered in every subject area. These services are free and offered in the days, evenings, even week-ends.
What is the deadline date for admissions as a transfer student?
The deadline date for the Fall semester is February 1st and for the Spring semester September 15th. If you apply beyond the deadlines, please understand that we may not be able to accommodate you in the spring. If so, you may re-activate your application for the summer and fall semesters. The Admissions Office will notify you accordingly.
For the Fall 2011 semester: We strongly recommend that students apply by late March for the fall semester. Please continue to check our website for more information on deadline dates.
How can I transfer credits which were gained through examination?
The most widely used programs for advanced college credits is the Advanced Placement (AP) taken in high school (www.collegeboard.org/student/testing/ap/about.html)
Advanced Placement (AP) courses taken in high school are designed and monitored by the College Entrance Examination Board. A final exam is required. Based on the exam scores, a college determines the award of college credit, if any. Official transcripts, obtained from the College Board, must be sent to the Office of Admissions.
Academic departments may approve the assignment of specific course equivalents for credit-by-examination and for Advanced Placement courses taken in high school and other outside agencies. Otherwise, such credits will be acceptable only as elective credits. Credits granted by examination through outside agencies will appear on student records appropriately identified by type of exam, subject, number of credits and P (passing) grade. No credit will be awarded for a subject area examination in which the student has already taken an equivalent college course or completed a higher level, more advanced college course.
What are College Now credits?
College Now courses are taught in several New York City high schools by CUNY faculty. Students who pass these classes do receive college credit. Official transcripts should be provided to the Registrar’s Office. Students with passing grades for College Now courses may not repeat these classes.
Students with AP credit and/or College Now credit are considered as FRESHMEN. They would only file as Transfer Students if they attended any college after high school.
