Residency Requirement for the CLAS Divisions as of Fall 2023

To be eligible for a degree, a student at the City College of New York, must complete 30 credits of their degree at City College. In addition, at least 60% of the major (50% required for a minor) must be completed in residency at City College. All transfer students and second degree students (including those who are graduates of City College) are subject to the residency requirement. Graduates of City College who return for a second degree may not use coursework completed under the first degree to meet the residency requirement for a second degree from City College.
