ISMMS GRADUATE SCHOOL-CUNY Graduate Center Exchange Program

Program Details

  • The course exchange program is free of tuition and application fees are waived for full time, matriculated (degree-seeking) graduate students from each Graduate School.

  • ISMMS Students may only register for CUNY GC courses in the Exchange program that are not offered by ISMMS during their program.

  • If an ISMMS student wishes the CUNY GC course credit to count toward their ISMMS degree, they must submit the course description and in some cases syllabus for review by the ISMMS academic advisor, for course approval.
