Transcript of Transfer Program Planning
Be sure to...
In your transfer evaluation from the Registrar, you will see which Nine Ways of Knowing you have already fulfilled. One way to pick classes for your first semester at Barnard is to consider which Nine Ways you have yet to fulfill and then select classes that do so.
For the full list of courses that satisfy the Nine Ways of Knowing, visit this webpage: http://snowbird.barnard.edu/pls/bcapp/mybc_courses_reqmts.courses_reqmts
In late July you will be able to sign up for courses on myBarnard. You will also have a chance to meet with a transfer adviser in person on July 15 or 20 or virtually on July 21 or 22. Then, during New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) you will meet with your assigned adviser to confirm your Fall 2015 program.
You will be taking 12-18 credits (or 4-6 classes each semester) during your time at Barnard.
Credits and Required Classes
In your admissions packet, you should have received an evaluation of your transfer credits from the Registrar's office. This will give you an idea of how many credits you have coming in and which general education requirements you have fulfilled.
Reminder: you must take 60 in-house credits at Barnard to graduate.
Courses to Start
Depending on your AP, IB, SAT subject tests, or previous coursework, you may be eligible to place out of the foreign language requirement.
If you have questions about what level language class you should be taking, contact the specific department.

If you are planning on being pre-health, then you should confirm which pre-health requirements you have already fulfilled. It is also a good idea to contact the Biology and Chemistry departments and see what courses you will need to take in their sequences.
Barnard has a 3-2 dual degree engineering program with the Columbia School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS). If you are coming to Barnard as a sophomore, you may still apply. The program's prerequisites are listed here. http://undergrad.admissions.columbia.edu/sites/default/files/2014-15_combined_plan_curriculum_guide.pdf
Note: You may fulfill all the prerequisites at Barnard.
If you are planning on majoring in Psychology or using Psychology as your laboratory science, be sure to take Intro to Psychology (BC1001) your first semester. If you have taken an equivalent at your previous college, contact the Psychology Department to see which classes you can take.
