Admissions & Aid
Entering graduate students may request to transfer in graduate credits from another college or university attended before being accepted to Brooklyn College. Students must apply for transfer credits within their first academic year.
To request transfer credits, complete the Graduate Transfer Credit Request form (PDF), attach an official transcript with a photocopy of the course description from the catalog/bulletin, and submit the package to your adviser for approval.
If you have taken a course at another institution while attending Brooklyn College as a graduate degree student, do not file the Graduate Transfer Credit Request form. If you did not get permission from your graduate deputy prior to enrolling for the course at another institution, you must file a petition with the Committee on Graduate Admissions and Standards (CGAS) for a retro permit. You can begin the process by visiting the Center for Academic Advisement and Student Success in 3215 Boylan Hall to request an appointment with the graduate adviser.
