To earn a bachelor's degree at Lehman College, students must earn a minimum of 120 credits. All students must complete at least thirty credits in residence at Lehman, including at least half of the credits of their chosen major and minor (if required). Credits in residence are defined as credits earned in Lehman College course work.
NOTE: Transfer students should have their transcripts evaluated as soon as possible. First, the Office of Admissions (Shuster Hall, Room 152) will evaluate transfer credits to determine their Lehman equivalents. Second, the Office of Academic Standards and Evaluation (Shuster Hall, Room 280) will determine which Lehman degree requirements have been met. Third, the academic department that houses the student's major (and minor, if needed) will determine which of these requirements have been met. Students who transfer directly from a CUNY or SUNY community college on completion of an A.A., A.S., or an A.A.S. degree will have satisfied the lower-division General Education Requirements of Lehman College. Such students must still satisfy the upper-division General Education Requirements and meet the New York State minimum liberal arts credit requirement as determined by the Office of Academic Standards and Evaluation.
