QC in 4 2018 Four-Year Graduation Commitment for Incoming Freshmen

QC in 4 is an exciting program at Queens College recognizing the importance of earning your bachelor’s degree in four years. It is a partnership between Queens College and YOU, a commitment empowering you to achieve your educational goals.

Since Queens College is dedicated to creating an environment that ensures your success, all students committed to the QC in 4 program will have access to supportive advisement services, tools and resources to facilitate degree completion, and graduation plans that help you map the path from college freshman to college graduate! Students who are part of the QC in 4 Program are guaranteed graduation in four years as per the student and college responsibilities outlined below.

To sign the Graduation Commitment, the Academic Advising Center has invited all first semester freshmen to a QC in 4 Orientation. Please check your email to reserve your spot.


Student Responsibilities 
In order to participate in the QC in 4 program, I understand that I must meet the following responsibilities:

1.     Meet with an academic advisor in the Academic Advising Center prior to the designated enrollment appointment each semester to discuss course selection, progress toward graduation, and degree mapping.

2.     Declare an eligible major by the end of the spring 2019 semester.

3.     Complete the appropriate credits and program requirements for my selected eligible degree program each academic year as per my academic map. 

4.     Be continuously enrolled in and successfully complete each fall and spring semester at least 15 credits. 

*Note: Most undergraduate degree programs consist of at least 120 credits to graduate. Summer and/or winter enrollment is not required but credits completed during the summer or winter sessions can be used toward the minimum credits required per semester for the selected eligible major. Any other interruptions of attendance, with the exception of participation in an approved permit or college-sponsored study abroad or service-learning experience, may result in disqualification from the program.

5.     Resolve all holds on my CUNYfirst account that may delay timely enrollment each semester, including making sure that my tuition bill is paid before the deadline each semester.

6.     Submit applications for financial aid each academic year if requiring financial assistance: (

7.     Understand that enrollment in additional minors, majors, certificates or changes of major, as well as the satisfaction of any requirements triggered by such additions or changes, must be completed within the original four-year period (before June 2022) in consultation with my academic advisor.

8.     Notify the college that graduation may be delayed due to course unavailability through during the enrollment period before the semester has begun and discuss any possible course substitutions with my advisor.

9.     Act on advice provided by my academic advisor in order to remain in good academic standing and to graduate within four years. I further understand that course withdrawals and grades of WU, WN, WD, FIN, and F will affect my course sequencing, prerequisite and co-requisite coursework, will hinder my progress toward earning a degree in four years, and may result in disqualification from the program.


Queens College Responsibilities

As part of the QC in 4 program, Queens College will:

1.     Guide you through your college career with a four-year academic map.

2.     Provide academic advising during the initial enrollment period at New Student Orientation and before registration each subsequent semester to review course selections from the recommended four-year map provided by the academic department.

3.     Ensure the availability of courses to enable you to complete the 2018 Four-Year Graduation Plan.

4.     Offer you tools, including an academic planner and online degree audit, to assist with monitoring degree progress.

5.     Provide you with an evaluation of your degree progress each semester, helping you stay on track with the 2018 Four-Year Graduation Plan.

6.     Work with the academic department(s) for course substitutions, independent study assignment(s), or a requirement(s) waiver if you meet all conditions of the 2017 Four-Year Graduation Plan but are unable to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in four consecutive academic years due to course unavailability. If the dean(s) of the division(s) determine that none of these adjustments is academically acceptable, Queens College will pay the tuition for you to take the course(s) required for degree completion within the next academic year at Queens College.
