Accessing the Equivalent Course Feature

CUNY schools list courses differently. For example, College Alegbra at QCC is listed as MA 119, but at John Jay the equivalent course is listed as MAT 105. Students may inquire what the equivalent course may be at an alternative CUNY by following the instructions below (this feature was formerly known as TIPPS). This allows CUNY and non-CUNY students/faculty/staff to view the benefits of TIPPS with an updated and integrated system.

Here is how you can locate the course equivalent feature:

*Make sure you are not signed into CUNY First. If you are, first open a new new window in a different browser.*

  • Go to http://www2.cuny.edu/

  • Hover over the “Academics” tab at the top of the page & Click “Academic Programs”

  • Choose "Course Catalogue" (appears under "Other Resources" at the bottom left of the page)

  • Select your home CUNY Institution at the top of the page & click “change”

  • Choose your subject, followed by the specific course you want to take.  

  • To the right, choose “fetch equivalent CUNY courses”

  • A list will appear if there are equivalent courses at a partner CUNY campus

  • “View class sections” by clicking the green button to the right of the class.

The information listed includes days, times, professor, and the terms that the course will be offered.
