You may also use the CUNY Transfer Explorer Tool to obtain lists of courses from your non-CUNY college that Brooklyn College has already evaluated and assigned Brooklyn College equivalent courses.
The amount of time it will take you to earn a baccalaureate degree is determined by the number of requirements you complete prior to transfer, the number of requirements remaining to be completed, and the amount of units you complete each term. If you complete all of the general education requirements and lower-division Core requirements, as well as a total of 60 transferable semester units, and continue at the transfer institution full time, you should be able to graduate in two years.
