81 credits permitted for transfer with a C (2.0) or better from a regionally accredited institution.
Since Gratz College offers only a select number of courses that meet the General Education requirements, most General Education coursework must be completed at other academic institutions and transferred in for credit at Gratz. In order to receive credit for transfer coursework, students must present an official transcript from an accredited college or university, which shows the completed coursework with a grade of “C” or better. Gratz faculty evaluates the transcript(s) to confirm that the transferred courses fulfill the General Education requirements. In some cases, General Education coursework is available through Gratz College, including coursework in history, literature and fine arts, diversity, and electives. Students should speak with an academic advisor to discuss the available options.
The purpose of the General Education requirement is to ensure that every student acquires the essential core of an undergraduate education. The requirements stress breadth of knowledge and the cultivation of intellectual abilities essential for the acquisition of knowledge that will help students prepare for success in a continually changing world. The General Education requirements are detailed below:
Students must take a minimum of 15 credits in approved courses designed to meet personal and intellectual interests complementary to the selected field of study.

Students seeking a first credential in Jewish Studies may wish to advance their level of Jewish literacy by completing the Undergraduate Certificate in Jewish Studies, an 18-credit program consisting of 6 courses in Jewish Studies. These courses may be completed either in the classroom or on-line.
