Transfer Student Application Online Process

Students who have attended a college, university, or other post-secondary institution in the U.S. or abroad since graduating from high school/secondary school or receiving a high school equivalency diploma should file a CUNY Online Application for Transfer.

A transfer application requires the following:

  1. An official high school transcript or the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) and scores with a minimum score of 2250 (formerly 225). The following are not acceptable:
    • A high school certificate
    • Commencement Credential Diploma formally known as IEP diploma
    • At-home-study diploma
    • Correspondence High School diploma
  2. An official transcript from all post-secondary institutions, colleges or universities attended since graduating from high school/secondary school or earning a GED.
  3. A $70 application processing fee to be paid online using Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express or electronic check. You can also submit a money order payable to Hostos Community College when applying in person.
  4. Students educated outside the United States should refer to the "Students Educated Abroad" section for additional information and requirements.

Students currently attending another CUNY institution do not have to pay the $70 fee. However, the transfer application must include the courses in progress. Once grades are posted and you are officially accepted to the college, an official updated transcript from that college must be mailed to the Hostos Community College Admissions Office.

Please follow the instructions on the CUNY Admissions web site for applying and/or submitting your transcripts. Do not send your transcript directly to Hostos Community College during the application filing process.
