3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My senior year in high school i took college credit classes and later i found out that my school doesn't accept those credits so taking those classes were basically a waste of my time. At the end of my first semester as a freshman i found out that administration had scheduled me to take some classes that didnt go towards my major so that was basically a waste of my time as well. I felt as if they should have let me know what classes i needed towards my major or at least given me a heads up being that it was my first time in college.

As long as you register during the early period, you will probably be able to pick the classes you want and fit your academic schedule into your personal schedule. Queensborough offers morning, afternoon, and evening classes every day of the week. Class size at Queensborough is relatively small, so even if you register late, you could still talk a professor into letting you join the class; there's no worry of overcrowding the rooms. Overall, Queensborough's academic flexibility is great for meeting students's need.

Tips for Earning Credits
  • See if your department will allow you to take a QCC Departmental Exam to test out of a class.
  • Take an AP test for possible credit or class exemptions.
  • Take an Excelsior College Exam, but check with your department first to make sure it will earn you credits toward your degree.
  • Take the CLEP (College Level Examination Program) Exam. See the registrar for appropriate forms.
Academic/Testing Requirements
New students are required to take assessment tests in writing, reading, and mathematics. Students who have scored 480 or higher on the SAT or 20 or higher on the ACT are exempt from the assessment test for that subject.

All freshmen are required to participate in one of six Freshman Academies: Business, Education, Health Related Sciences, Liberal Arts, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), or Visual and Performing Arts. Academy programs include special advisers to help first-year students get the most out of their time at QCC.
Transferring Credits In & Out
QCC will only accept transfer credits for courses that received a grade of C or better. The maximum number of transfer credits accepted is 30 for students working toward an Associate degree and 15 for students working toward a certificate.

Students who plan to continue their education at another institution after graduation should follow the suggested transfer curriculum for their area of study. All QCC graduates are eligible to transfer to any senior college in the CUNY system. There are also transfer programs in place with SUNY and other area colleges.
Typical Session Length
Fall and Spring sessions are about 16 weeks each. Winter session lasts about 4 weeks during January.
Course Registration Process
Students can register online using a system called eSIMS through the CUNY portal. Students having trouble with registration can visit the Registration Center for assistance. Registration requires an appointment date, which is assigned after a student has met with his adviser.
