Transfer Courses

Equivalent courses to ENG 2100 and 2150 taken at another CUNY institution are granted transfer equivalency at Baruch under the conditions for transfer outlined by Admissions. First-year writing courses taken outside CUNY are evaluated by Admissions, in collaboration with the Department of English, for transfer equivalency. For questions about transfer credit, please contact Brenda Maller, Transfer Coordinator in Admissions or Prof. Lisa Blankenship, Writing Director, Department of English.
