In Fall 2013 CUNY implemented the Pathways initiative across its undergraduate colleges. Pathways established a new system of general education requirements and new transfer guidelines across CUNY–and by doing so reinforces CUNY’s educational excellence while easing student transfer between CUNY colleges.

CUNY’s new general education framework is a central feature of Pathways. It lays out requirements that undergraduate students across CUNY must meet. Importantly, it also guarantees that general education requirements fulfilled at one CUNY college will be carry over seamlessly if a student transfers to another CUNY college.

Changes to the general education requirements were made to align Guttman Community College’s curriculum with the CUNY Pathways Common Core requirements. Students who pursue transfer degree programs in Business Administration, Human Services, Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Urban Studies will be required to fulfill all 30-credit general education requirements in addition to fulfilling their program requirements. Students in the A.A.S. degree program in Information Technology should review its general requirements.
