Important Information

  • If there is a hold on your record, it must be cleared by the Registrar or the Bursar before your registration can be processed.
  • Students must use their official Citytech email for all college business. The Business Department cannot answer personal questions unless you use your Citytech email address. For access and more information on your student e-mail account click here.
  • If you visit ANY City Tech office and/or speak with any advisor or other person at City Tech, you MUST print out and complete a Student Routing Slip BEFORE you come to the Business Department for additional information. If you are requesting that we deal with your issue via email, we still require the Student Routing Slip. In this case, please scan/photograph the completed slip and send the image along with your email. We cannot process your requests without this completed slip. Similarly, if WE send you to another office and/or advisor or other person at City Tech, we will sign your completed Routing Slip so you will have it to show that office/person/etc. This is very important because we want to avoid giving conflicting information. The routing slip will also document every encounter you have with advisors and other people. This way, there will be less ambiguity about your requirements, schedules, etc.
  • International students need to have their transcripts evaluated, approved, and certified in coordination with the IS Peer Advisement program. The department can only help with Business Department-specific issues AFTER that process is complete. Please click here to be paired with an advisor. For further information, contact Vanessa Villanueva, International Student Advisor by phone at 718-260-5509 or sign-up via email at ISLinkUP@citytech.cuny.edu

Claiming your Liberal Arts (LA) credits can be a tricky process. Between WAC, ID, WI, EC, MQR, College Option, etc, there are many, sometimes overlapping, rules and distribution requirements. In addition, the list of courses that meets the LA requirement at City Tech is changing all the time. Also, the way Degree Audit (DA) counts them is not the same as the way they are counted for graduation and may not even be the same on different dates, as you may have experienced. A lot depends on your major, your catalog year, other classes you have/have not taken, etc. Rarely, a course counts as LA for one student, but not for another. The same course might count as meeting the CE criterion, AND the LA and Major requirements. However, even if it is used for BOTH CE and the Major requirements, it only counts as 3 credits, NOT the 6 credits that Degree Audit, in its current incarnation, implies. As requirements, majors, etc. evolve, which LA courses count for you may change as well. Beyond these, you must also consider Advanced LA and College Option requirements. It really depends on the individual student and the program he/she is enrolled in, and the year you became a City Tech student.

General information can be found here: www.citytech.cuny.edu/advisement/gen-ed.aspx

For questions regarding your specific Liberal Arts count and/or discrepancies between what your current Degree Audit (DA) says, what previous DA say, and what you think is true, follow this procedure:

  1. Login to CUNYfirst and obtain/print your current Transcript (TR) and your DA.
  2. Open the 2019 Approved LA Course List here: www.citytech.cuny.edu/gen-ed/liberal-arts-sciences.aspx
  3. Check each class on your transcript against the approved list and circle those that you find. Note, you need not bother with courses beginning with ACC, BUF, BUS, or MKT as they are not eligible.
  4. Count the number of circles and multiply by 3. This is the number of LA course credits you may be able to claim. Note: some courses, e.g., MAT-1275 and BIO-1101, are 4 credit courses. If you take 3 of these, you will only need to take 19 liberal arts courses.

Now:

  1. If the number calculated in Step 4 agrees with what appears on your DA, then there is nothing more to do. You will need to take additional LA courses until your minimum is met.
  2. If this number is greater than what appears on the DA, then send a detailed explanation, along with scans of both documents, to Yelena Kirsanova in the Registrar’s Office. You can reach Registrar Kirsanova here: YKirsanova@citytech.cuny.edu
  3. If all of the above fails to resolve the situation, you will need to make an appointment to see the department GenEd/Pathways specialist, Dr. Denise Sutton, for further guidance. You can contact Dr. Sutton here: DSutton@citytech.cuny.edu
    Note: you will not be able to meet with Dr. Sutton unless all of the previous steps (1-4) have been carried out first.

Please be sure to attach clear copies of all your documentation to your emails.

Note: If you are a transfer student, then sometimes LA course taken at another institution are transferred into categories that City Tech does not designate as LA. For example, a Psychology course that is not offered here may be transferred as ELEC-1000 since there is no directly equivalent course. ELEC-1000 masks the underlying status, and so it may not be added to the count. We can fix this: if you feel you have non-credited LA courses from your prior institution, you should see your academic advisor.

Please let your academic advisor know how it works out.
