Transfer Student Information

Transfer Students

Welcome to the Finance, Information Systems and Economics Department! The Department is committed to the mission of the School of Business to develop the next generation of economists, business leaders, professionals, consultants, and entrepreneurs. The FIE Department offers two undergraduate majors: B.A. in Economics and B.A. in Economics and Mathematics.

Students are required to have an advising meeting in the Department to be advised and have their major approved. It is best to schedule the appointment after you have received notice that your credits are evaluated. Advising appointments are made through Navigate.


We strongly encourage students to prepare for majors in the FIE Department by taking mathematics before they transfer. It is possible to complete both Economics major by taking mathematics at Lehman College but taking pre-calculus or calculus before you matriculate at Lehman College will shorten your path to degree completion.

Once admitted you may have courses that need to be equated with Lehman courses. They will show in Lehman 360 under ‘Transfer Courses’ as 8888 equivalencies. You must upload a description or syllabus for the courses in order for us to determine what coursework you completed in the courses marked 8888. *You need to do that right away to avoid repeating courses you may have already taken*.


If you haven’t applied to Lehman College yet, please go the Admissions Office website for more information on transfer requirements and the application process.

Once you have been accepted you will receive detailed information from the Admissions Office regarding the next steps toward becoming enrolled at Lehman. Please note that this process does take some time, so apply to transfer as early as possible!

We very much look forward to welcoming you to the School of Business!
