Students who complete the AS in Individual Studies will meet all ten general education requirements required by the State University of New York thereby improving transfer opportunity to a SUNY four-year college. While the general education component will anchor the student in the liberal arts, the program also provides 21-25 credits of free electives and provides the student with the flexibility to explore a variety of disciplines and potential majors. Students with specialized transfer plans will likewise be able to focus on their specific academic plans.
In order to use their electives wisely toward transfer, students who pursue Individual Studies are strongly advised to consult the college to which they hope to transfer during their first and second semesters at Westchester. Students who are undecided about their course of study at Westchester are required to meet with the Individual Studies Curriculum Chair to consider all their options during their first and second semester at Westchester.
