How to Apply as a Second Degree Student

Students who have received an Associate degree from Queensborough Community College should complete the online CUNY Application as a transfer student. The application will then be processed internally to reflect second degree status.

Students who have obtained a baccalaureate degree, or attended another college(s) since leaving/graduating Queensborough must also submit official transcript(s) from those institutions to the Admissions Office. Transcripts will be reviewed for transfer credit consideration, and such credit will be determined according to the college’s transfer policy. Students for a second degree are required to complete a minimum of 30 credits toward the new Associate degree at Queensborough.

Services for Students with Disabilities

If you need accommodation(s) due to a disability, please contact Queensborough's Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) at 718-631-6257.
