Transfer Students

Welcome to Baruch College.  As you continue your path of higher education, we want to share with you some important information and resources.  The advisement staff is dedicated to helping our transfer students make a successful transition to Baruch.

Tips for Success

  • Keep track of all grades in each course.  At any point in the semester you should know your grade in each course.
  • Mark in your calendar or set a reminder in your cell phone for important deadlines in the academic calendar, such as the last day to drop a course.  Develop timelines and keep semester and weekly calendars for dates when course assignments are due.
  • Prioritize and organize your study and personal time into daily and weekly patterns of effectiveness, maintain regular study hours, and establish a study environment that allows you to stay focused.
  • Visit your professors during office hours and utilize the SACC Center for help with challenging courses.
  • Develop a network of resources: make a list of phone numbers and email addresses of your faculty, advisors, tutors, and at least one other student from each class.
  • Review the specific deadlines, policies, and procedures relating to your academic status, course withdrawal, course repeats, course registration, and the eligibility requirements for your major.
  • Check your Baruchmail and Blackboard on a consistent basis.
  • Utilize your Degree Works Audit for help in planning your course load and tracking your academic progress. The DegreeWorks Auditis a computerized program that displays your academic information based on the colleges’ requirements found in the Baruch Bulletin.
  • Familiarize yourself with course pre-requisites and co-requisites.
