Transfer Credit Course Equivalency Instructions
Download a copy of your Hunter College transcript from
CUNYFirst This is not the transcript from your previous college that
you took the course(s) from (we probably won’t need that). This is
your Hunter transcript which lists the courses that you got transfer
credit for. If you took a course that does not show up on your Hunter
transcript then you cannot have that course evaluated by the
department yet. You must contact the admissions office to obtain
transfer credit for the course and then you can get the course
evaluated by us.
To obtain a copy of your transcript do the following:
- Log in to CUNYFirst
- Go to Student Center
Under the section called Academics click on the link My Academics
- Select View my unofficial transcript
- For institution select Hunter
- For report type select unofficial transcript
- Click on View Report

This is a fillable PDF form, so you can fill it out on your computer
and print out a hard copy. Fill in your name and EMPLID#. Ignore the
space where it says “Temporary/social security#”. Use one line for
each course on your Hunter Transcript that you wish to have evaluated.
If you have more than four courses to be evaluated, use a second form.
For each course, in the first box on the left, fill in the name of the
college where you took the course, and the course number which includes
some prefix designating the discipline, e.g. MATH, MAT, etc. Then fill
in the course title. Do not put anything in the middle or right boxes.
Download and print a copy of a page or two from the college catalog
from where you took the course which shows the catalog listing of the
course you took. The course description will be brief but that’s okay.
Hopefully the catalog listing will indicate the prerequisites for the
course. Context is the most important thing here – try to include the
listings of several courses that come before the one you took and
several courses that come after. For example, if it is a precalculus
course, the catalog listing will probably show something like a
college algebra course that was a prerequisite to your precalculus
course, and a calculus course that your precalculus course is
prerequisite to. In this example, even if you did not take the college
algebra course, or do not plan on taking the calculus course, that
information is still most valuable for evaluation the transfer credit
for the course you did take, Click the following link for an example
of a typical catalog listing which shows the relevant information.
