Students transferring to Lehman with an A.A.S. degree are required to complete Lehman College's Pathways General Education Curriculum. An Advising Guide for A.A.S.

Transferring to Lehman without an Associate’s degree
While we encourage students to complete their Associate’s degree, often times students choose to transfer to Lehman College before completing their Associate’s degree. In these cases we suggest that students, who can complete their Associate's degree during their first two semesters at Lehman College, work in tandem with Advisors at both Lehman and Westchester Community College to ensure that students maximize opportunities to take courses that satisfy both their degree requirements at Lehman and the remaining coursework at Westchester Community College. The transfer database contained on this page can serve as a tool to help students identify courses that can be applied to both their Lehman degree and their Westchester Community College degree. Students that complete their Associates degree while enrolled at Lehman College will have their lower-level General Education requirements waived as mentioned above.General Education requirements for non-Associate’s degree holders.
