To the members of the CUNY community:

Consistent with practices established by the Board of Trustees resolution of June 27, 2011, faculty committees have continued to meet to establish the first three to six courses that lead into the largest transfer majors at CUNY. Draft recommendations from committees for economics, political science, and sociology are now available and are posted below. Comments are welcome until Wednesday, March 13, and may be submitted via email to

In addition, work that carried over from last spring regarding the majors in biology and business has now been completed. New reports concerning those majors are also available and are posted below.

Draft recommendations on the major in engineering are currently being developed.

Thank you, in advance, for your thoughtful consideration.
